new here 383 4 bolt questions

hi i recently bought a 71 chevelle with all mods listed below,

383 4 Bolt Main, 202/194 Double Hump Heads, Stainless Steel valves with Titanium locks, Double spring valve springs, 11:1 Comp, Forged flat top pistons with 4 valve release, lightened crank, Solid lift cam, Aluminum Roller Rockers, MSD Ignition, 2800 Stall Converter, 350 Turbo with B&M Shift Kit, B&M shifter, Auto Meter gauges, Super Tach., Aluminum 4 core radiator, electric twin fans, fuel cell with electric fuel pump, Holley 850 Demon Carb.

so have a few questions i am an ls1 guy with fuel injection so this is entirely new. first of all i dont like the heads on it ive been told there old school and i could do better with modern heads. so what heads would you guys recommend for this engine that would fit nicely? im also looking to convert it to fuel injection ( gotta go with what im comfortable with) but thats another story. mainly the heads are my main concern right now looking for suggestions.
