The head and cam swap should get you close to 55 hp increase. May be able to get more with different cam.

Not sure how much the fuel injection will get you but it defiantly improves drivability. I have a Gremlin I have done a complete 4.0 swap and my Eagle I have done the head and added fuel injection kit made from a 4.2 chevy throttle body set up.

I've done the head, cam, and fuel injection to my Kammback.  Very noticeable improvement after the cam and head swap, then several years later I added the GM TBI, which to me greatly improved the acceleration and driveability.  Not sure the acceleration improvements would have been possible without the cam and head swap.  The throttle body kit came from Performance Fuel Injection Systems, they have their own web site and also sell on eBay.  It's a nice kit.

Good luck!
