Try and find some e7 heads from 87 and later 5.0's. They are much better than the e6 heads.

Going to the E7 heads would be a good step,you should be able to use yours for core exchange check your local machine shops.302 Ford heads weak spots are limited exhaust breathing to offset that go with a cam that is a split duration, I would look at a Crower Baja Beast ( 15915 duration @.50 is 204 int 210 exh adv lift is 443 int 452 exh this will give you the torque a truck needs to get moving and good mileage.A Weiand action plus and 600 Holley would work well with it.Tri-Y headers will make good torque as well
