best performance upgrades for '72 402

Can someone tell me what are the best performance upgrades for a 1972 402? I am starting with a "I suppose a stock' 402 and I have never built one of these before. Should I change the crank for more displacement or just work on the top-end? Any help and advice would be great. Thanks

we need a lot more information.

car weight
daily driver or pure track
would you consider N02 or forced induction
mpg important
what are you expecting the engine to do?
and are you willing to change other parts to match the engine mods like gear, stall, exhaust........

Get us the head casting numbers that would be a good start. What do you want it to do?
