BBC Cylinder Head Choice

I am building a 540 bbc. i am starting with a dart big m, lunati crank, eagle rods, je piston, pump gas compression.

I will use a 4500 super victor, and either brodix bb-2x or bb-2xtra.

they have 340cc and 365cc runners respectively.

i am looking for lots of HP up top, and the cam i have picked out is a comp oval track solid roller comp cam.

i would like to stick to brodix heads, but if you know of any that are better, let me know.
