I would get a set of ported heads if you can aquire them cheaply. The only time you need to soak lifters is if you install new ones or if your old ones have been out of the car for a while. After any kind of head or cam installation, it wouldnt hurt to pour some oil on top of the lifters. Whatever oil you normally use is fine.

Here is how I do it.

Whatever heads you get should be torqued to whatever the manufacturer specs say. Stock heads say 55-60 lb/ft the first time you torque , then torque again to 70lb/ft.
