Another thing to consider is how do you want to build the 331 in the future? It may not be such a bad idea to step up to 185cc heads now to keep from having to replace a perfectly good set of 165s.
It's a good point. I'm almost sure I will one day want more power and wish I had gone with the 185cc heads. It needs to be a very streetable car that is good in hot summer traffic jams with the A/C blowing, constant freeway driving and occasional trips down the track. Tall order, but I'm sure I can figure it out. I picked a 331 as it seemed like a good combination of power and durability. I like the idea of aftermarket EFI. Easier to tune and adapt to changes. I may go that route.

Thanks for the advice.
