the AFR 195's are an excellent street head. Personally I wouldn't buy any smaller head though. With those heads if you don't break 400hp you must be missing 2 pistons.

The most important thing is sticking with a plan and find a good cam. If this is a really important build please find a boutique cam grinder and pay the little extra for a custom cam. Only a few degrees here or there can be a 30hp+ difference. A custom carb is also worth a lot on the street and may cost twice as much as a out of the box option, just beware.
