Cylinder head questions for a 545

I'm building a 545 Bbf. It's going in a 1968 f100 the truck will be a street strip truck with mainly just strip use. The only street use will be rod shows and such.
I found a set of tfs a460 ( tfs-5451T802-M87) heads for a great price new or should I go with a scj or p51 combo. I'm looking for 800- 950 hp and may upgrade to spray later. I haven't purchased the stroker kit waiting on heads. The block will either be a dive or c8ve. I have both. Any help with the build will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Go with the A heads. While the SCJ and P-51's are good heads, you'd be hard pressed to make your goal in a NA configuration.

BTW, you should move this to "Engine Tech"

Rob is correct, I would use a set of A-heads as well to get the HP you are looking for N/A, if I knew from the start what I know now I would have built a A-headed engine, the next one will if monies allow!!!!!!!
