SBC Cylinder Head Suggestions

I currently have a 4-Bolt Main (grey caps) 350 chevy bored .040" over. Cast steel crank and a set of "powder" rods. The crank and rods were given to me by a friend and I had the necessary machine work done on them. I would like to replace the tired and worn out 305 in my 85' Chevy 4x4.

I'm at the point of considering cylinder heads, likely cast iron but possibly aluminum and cam selection, possibly even a roller.

Truck ways about 4000 lbs according to factory tag.

I would love to build a fairly high hp engine with some streetability. I was thinking around 400-450 hp would be doable, but being a 4x4 I don't want it to be a dog on the bottem rpm.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
