Default Which Heads?

Just bought some 24# blue top fuel injectors for my stang, new e303 cam, trick flow track heat intake and 76mm mass air flow. Now its time to get some heads, to complete my build. Which heads would be the best with this combination?

I had great results with a similar set up and same cam with AFR 185 heads on a .030 over 5.0 It made 295HP to the tires and 305 ft lbs of torque on a chassis dyno before the underdrive pulleys and cold air intake. This set up runs low 12's with a five speed on engine.

I have the brand new engine in my garage, that has never been ran. when installing these new heads, could i use the same bolts, cuz i know that sometimes these bolts are torgue to yeild, so they may not be reusable. Also, will these new heads come with gaskets, and what might be the biggest problems i face installing new heads?

yup at the flywheel not on a chassis dyno to the tires.(305 ft lbs) I used a 190 lph fuel pump from walbro for 80 bucks and went with ARP head bolt kit from summit for about 70 bucks (12 point) with the washers for the aluminum heads. I also used the graphite head gaskets from Ford Racing. The dyno pull was in high humidity in 105 degree weather so it made good numbers to the tires given the heat.

how hard was it to replace your fuel pump. With my stock fuel pump, and a new set of 24# injectors, im afraid that my fuel pump may be starving my injectors.
