Recommend me a build! 400 sbc, 64cc heads

So, this is my first sbc build - and I need some help! I've got a '70s 400 sbc 2 bolt short block, and a set of bare Trick Flow aluminum heads with the following specs...

Where can I go from here with another $800 - $1,500? What CR? What pistons? Rockers? Cam? Carb? Intake? I need it to run on CA 91 pump gas, and I'm not really interested in nitrous. I'm looking for a very streetable engine, possible daily driver duty and 1/8 and 1/4 mile fun once a week. This is a budget build - I'm not afraid of wrenching myself or used parts so assume the only thing I'm going to farm out or pay top dollar for is the machining. (Can anyone recommend a good machine shop in the Los Angeles area?)

I have a '63 C-20 I can drop this into but if this turns out to be a sweet little motor I'll stick a Goodwrench 350 I have hanging around in the truck and find a nice little 2 door for this 400.
