SBC What head for me?

Ok its my turn, I need a couple of hotrodders opinons. I am building a hot rod motor, well really a boat hot rod. Heres what ive got. 350 SBC 30 over. New TRW forged pistons and rods with ARPs. Forged TRW crank. Torquer manifold with 650 hP Holley, Here where I need you guys. I want to go with roller hydraulic cam and a nice set of street/iron heads. Would you use the World Torquer heads, or I like the Dart Iron Eagle 200. I want to go with about 9.5- 10.0 C/R. I want 6200 max RPM and be able to run all day (so to speak) at 5500 with out breaking parts. 510 or so max lift on the cam with 1.5 roller rockers. I also have another set of rods that have been cleaned up and honed for floating pins, so that means buying pistons, is it worth it? or stay with the forged TRW and pressed pins.
So happy I found this site and enjoy contributing.
I am also writing an article on oil control for the SBC and would like to publish that later, I will take lots of photos for that on this rebuild.
OH...the boat... 1600lb Jersey Speed Skiff

For starters the torker intake isn`t that great. You`d come out better using
a Performer RPM or a weiand stealth intake. I perfer pressed pins.
Being your only looking for a 5500 max cruise RPM you don`t need big port heads. 200 cc runner heads on a 350 with a open plane torker intake out of the hole it`ll be really sluggish due to the loss of velocity. If you haven`t picked a cam pick one that`s for marine use. In fact the GM crate engine marine hydraulic roller cams are all over ebay at a really cheap price. I`m not sure if your block is roller compatible or you`ll be using a retro roller as you didn`t say. These are the heads I would use, the smaller 165cc runners support out of the hole and midrange power:

With these heads you could use the Torker successfully but it still wouldn`t be as good as the performer RPM.

The Dart Iron Eagle SS heads recommended by DoubleVision would work great, and they're available from AeroHead Racing in Indianapolis for $659.00 per pair assembled. http://www.aeroheadracing.com/id4.html

I don't know why my link isn't working in my first post. I can't edit the post now so I'll try it again.
