to answer both questions, yes, These kits will work with 79-81 302 blocks as well. The year model breakdown is as follows. From the factory 79-81 Mustangs used a 2 piece rear main seal and the 82-95 had a one piece. The OEM Ford cranks are specific to the year ranges but the aftermarket made changes to where they will work with either configuration.

Could I run this kit on a street car with daily use and use 93 octane, sense it is 11:8:1 compression. And will it be street-able. Also one last thing, is this 347 stroker kit give me the most power out of all the 347 kits you guys offer? Thank you.

You would want to run a larger combustion chamber head to keep your compression ratio in the 11.0:1-11.5:1 range. I would honestly recommend 11.0:1 for a serious street car because of the variations with today's fuel octane levels. For a Naturally aspirated engine the higher compression 347 kit will have the most potential for making power on a production block 302. Keep in mind though that the rotating assembly is only 1 component to an engine build. You need to carefully plan out which cylinder heads, intake system and valve-train you are going to run in order to meet your specific goals. It would be best to sit down with a reputable machine shop or engine builder to plan out your build and make sure it is the correct route you want to go in order to meet your goals.
