What brand/size heads would work best for a turbo 347?

You'll need to give much more info. about your car and it's intended use to even get a response from any of the qualified people on this site. When you feel you've given too much info. it's probably still not enough. These guys do not want to steer you wrong but they need something to work with.

   I have a 347 with forged internals flat top pistons and stock deck height. I was looking to make a 10 second street/strip car with a mild turbo set up. I wasn't sure if the out of the box AFR 185s I have would flow enough for that or if I should go to the 205s or something?  I planned on getting a custom cam once I figured out what set up Im going with. I was curious on what combinations  some of the turbo guys had success with?

Buy bigger now.  The custom cam will take care of everything and you'll be glad you bought the bigger ones later when you upgrade the combo.

I would run what you have. I have seen guys running 8's with untouched AFR 185's. I ran 10.90 @127 with a bone stock 157,000 mile 1986 grand marquis shortblock, self ported e7's, 650dp self built for blowthrough, 3.23 gears, 2400 converter, 12psi from junkyard t-bird turbos. It was in my nissan 240sx which weighs about the same as a foxbody. You can make enough power to run 10's with a bone stock engine so you should have no problems. I am building a 351 with single turbo and edelbrock heads that flow not much more than yours with the f- cam and am pushing for high 8's.

185's with a turbo will be way more then enough for a 10 second car. in fact you would more likely be knocking on 9's with that combo. hell a 347 naturally aspirated with 185's, a custom cam. victor jr intake and a pro systems carb with a stick will run high 10's on motor alone.

Hell yeah!  That's what I want! I love drag racing!  I decided today to buy another car to drive so I could focus on making my mustang a full blown race car. No more street/strip bullshit! Im not fucking around anymore!
