302 power

Hi guys...

I have a 1987 5.0HO which I have converted to a carb setup. I was planning to do a blow-thru turbo setup but I have changed my mind and now I need some tips for making some decent power. The main thing I am looking at adding are aluminum heads and a cam. Here is my setup right now:

car weight 2700~ with driver
4.10 LSD rearend (IRS)
27x10.5 slicks
stock 5.0HO longblock (forged pistons)
underdrive pulleys
single plane hi-rise intake
Holley 625
HEI dist. with MSD 6AL ignition
-8 fuel line
Holley "Blue" fuel pump

Any opinions on what size heads/cam I should go with? I am not planning to touch the bottom end at all except to doe the camshaft. I want to keep short block completely stock other than the cam.
