any head can be improved,but at what cost? what do you want?biggest "problem" with FE heads is the exhaust doesnt flow much compared to the intake side.

another problem

Ford 429's are not Fe Engines. Completely different . 1972 429 were low HP anti smog engines. Low compression etc. best heads are 1968, 1969 T bird 429 heads may help some. i dont know if Ford raised the block height on these or not.
