I am running these Brodix 210 cc heads that are CNC machined by Keith Craft. Not as much flow as the heads mentioned but more than enough for your goals. They are decent heads, running them on a 395w.

A lot of good heads mentioned in here.
My suggestion is solely based on getting away from inline type heads. They are the easiest to lift under boost and experience the most gasket failures.

I prefer canted valve heads but they are not always needed or practical. The Brodix Head Hunters can use a Super Victor 8.2 deck manifold but I had to make some custom end rail spacers on the waterjet and then machine them to fit. The ports are so high the end rail gaps are over .750". I screwed one half to the block and the other half to the intake leaving just enough room for a thin layer of RTV between them to maximize sealing. Holley has just released a new 8.2 deck High Ram manifold that is not really any taller overall than a Super Victor, carb and air cleaner. There would be less porting with this option. I spent a ton of hours porting the Super Victor and still don't like the small plenum area of the 4150 style intake. There is not a Dominator flanged intake commercially available that I know of. We may change this setup since we may now be going to port injection vs the Sniper TB EFI the customer already had before the build started and is now of questionable HP capacity.

Nice.. Those flow numbers are right there with the AFR's and High Ports..

I saw that new Holley intake and like it a lot.. You think that will flow enough and be a nice match with these Head Hunters without any machine work? Honestly, I like this combo the best..

Forget about a compression ratio in the 8's. All that does is make the engine lazy out of boost and require more boost to achieve your goals. I ran 10:1 turbo street engines with no issues. Also, for your goal of 1400 or less you don't need anything near as expensive as canted valve or revised valve angle heads. An off the shelf set of 20* cnc'd heads will do just fine. AFR's are not junk. I have ran at least 8 sets of them and currently have 2 small blocks with 220 renegades on them. I also am a fan of the high port head. Either will get you where you want to be. The high ports have a thicker deck and will resist lifting a bit more it seams. But seriously, don't waste money of heads that will require different pistons, intake an d other parts just to get them to function. Your engine is small so utilize rpm to make up for that. Get a healthy cam that will let you spin 7000+ and use some of those larger runner 20* heads that you already have parts for. Have fun.

I agree with Marbles & Enginerd...I run Edelbrock Vic JR heads with no port work, basically out of the box with severe duty valves and PAC springs for my turbo cam. 25 psi boost with MLS gaskets many times with no issues thus far...I'm guessing I'm around 1100 or so fwhp.

I have tuned a few on OTB 195's (a few different brands) run in the 7's... It doesn't take much....
