Bare Head?

I have just finishing stripping down a head off a 1988 TC.  It will be
on its way to a machine shop next week for some work.

Staying somewhat reasonable in price, what is the best head to build to
put on my 1986 SVO (Turbo flowing 15% more air than stock, boost at 20
psi, 42 lb/hr inj, stock intercooler)?  I also have a Crane HI-6 and
PS-91 coil, 3" exhaust.

Is the extra money of a roller cam worth the extra horsepower?  Is there
a difference between the roller cam offered by Racer Walsh (they think
it's the best, but if they didn't I would be worried) and the Ford
Motorsport unit?

Has anyone documented horsepower gains by enlarging the intake and
exhaust valves to 1.89/1.59?

Why is everyone nuts about the Engle cam?  Is it that much better than
anything out there?

Anyway, I'm open to thoughts, ideas, tips, or tricks.
