I much prefer a shorter stem and unless your an out and out xc racer most people find it makes their bike more responsive/chuckable for trying jumps etc.The longer the stem, the further your pivot/balance point is and the more likely your weight will be forward and potentially increases the chance of going over the bars.so if you like to play about,tryin a few freeride things,i would go shorter,or stay at 80mm for the xc set up.

31.8 on my pitch i think,i bought the sunline v1 737 bars to go with it,much wider than the 660mm i had on there before.feels much more stable and my hands are planted right in the middle of the grips instead of overhanging the bar ends.plenty of other choices out there,but i liked that set up.
