Help with 3.8 V6 overheated and knocking

I have a 81 gp with a 3.8 n/a v6....recently I replaced the head gaskets and had the heads magnafluxed and shaved...after putting everything back together and driving it the thing started smoking again it overheated...Do you all think the heads are still good or should i get them magnafluxed again...Also after reving the engine out of anger the damn thing started knocking...I plan on pulling the block sometimes next week...well when i do go inside this engine should i fix the knocking problem and slap it back together or should i have it bored and whatever else....I also plan on using a turbo carb

I used to do stuff like this when I was 22. You'll grow out of it.
