That's all bolt on stuff I'm afraid...
Sort out the heads with a good valve job polish and port
Balance the crank and flywheel etc
Then worry about ya bolt on goodies
Perfect choice on the carbs
Deep sump etc with a cooler

Port polish heads, match to manifolds
Lighten flywheel, 8 dowel?
3.88 gear box?

Twin 36s and the airfilters, although those air filters will do nothing that a standard one won't. Forget breather towers, they are bolt on junk that will most likely make your engine worse, the stock one is best. Serpentine kit, looks great but unless you are going to be making super high revs it is pointless. Oil cooler on a stocker will probably make it worse. Get your self a stock SVDA and fit an Accuspark ignition module. Those fancy dissys won't give you anything that a stock unit doesn't already do. Don't bother with deep sumps they are pointless.

Personally I'd fit the carbs, exhaust and electronic ignition and then make sure the rest of the ancillaries are as good as they can be. i.e Make sure all the correct tinware is in place with flaps and a thermostat. Don't bother with repro tinware, s/h OE stuff is far superior. Once all that is done, see how it is. The carbs will give you a fair boost in power on their own.

After that start looking at heads and cams.

Exhaust

Should be a good start

If you are going for heads like that then you'd be better off with a cam and a set of rockers too.

Personally I'd have work done to my existing heads rather than something that was made of purest Chineseum.
