another sbc question

I have asked this question a while back, but now I have some more info on my motor. I currently have a 355 sbc with SR torquer heads (76cc, 2.02/1.6, 171cc intake runners) street port/polish, an Edelbrock Victor Jr, Holley 750 vacuum sec., Lunati cam with .480 lift int/exh 292 adv dur, 230@.050., and Sealed Power L2256F30 pistons. The motor came assembled with the Fel-pro blue gaskets (.040) and the motor is claimed to be a 10:1 400hp. With the heads, I'm thinking its about 370 and 8.5:1. I swapped out the gaskets for
.015 steel shim gaskets, but I figure I'm running around 9:1. I've been looking at the Patriot pn2168 aluminum head to get that 400hp or slightly more. Would these heads be a good choice or is there better for around the same price?
