289 rebuild & build up

We have a 67 fastback 289 w/c4. looking to do a HCI install but not sure what to buy. have a 3K budget.

Looking to keep the stock block, crank and rods if pass inspection. Swap to roller lifters & rockers with aluminum heads. Want a mild aggressive classic lopy cam sound but stay streetable.

Car has elderbrock intake and a new elderbrock 650 carb just getting blowby. Want to bore 30 over and put heads, convert to roller lifters and cam for some fun. Car not a racer!

So question is what heads, cam and intake combo to go with??
