Default 351 build

hey guys, tonight i went and bought myself a 351 windsor out of a 95 truck, its going into my 1996 f150. Anyway I was told its only got 60,000 miles because it was out of a truck that rotted out. its got a new pan on it. but Before i install it i'd like to get more power out of it because this is going in my street truck. i was thinking about doing the GT40 heads with a valve job, i'd like to put a cam in it (maybe a mild thump cam) idk i'd like to have a nice lope to it, but not too bad as to make it un-driveable. The motor didn't come with the upper intake so should i look for like a mustang one? how about bigger injectors?? i also want to put a larger BBK 61mm TB. But if i get a mustang upper intake would that work? i just have a bunch of unanswered questions about making power. could you guys help me out!?
thanks
Zac
