austrailian 351C heads

I have a 1972 ford gran torino fast back with a 2V 351C. Its got an aftermarket edelbrock 4 barrel intake and carb, along with upgraded ignition and long tube headers. I was wondering what the compression would be if I swap to a set of austrailian 4V 351C heads. I'm gonna do a complete rebuild and wanted a good street and strip engine. Should I keep the original 2V heads and use dome tops or go to those austrailian heads and use flat tops. If I use flat tops with the austrailian heads, what's the compression and what's the part number for some forged dome tops for the 2V heads?

I want to have around 10.5 to 1 compression so I can still run 93 octane pump gas. I want it to be on the edge of what I can safely run pump gas in with no additives. I don't want to run high octane race gas. Also, are the stock heads set up to run leaded gas or unleaded? I hear some valve noise and was concerned that it was needing a lead substitute

Would holley's projection fuel injection setup work with that and a 292 duration camshaft?
