If you have decent pistons in it you can hook up some Nitrous and get a 100-200 hp boost without too much trouble. If you have the stock cast pistons I would keep it down to about 75. If you don't want to go that route a good set of heads would help a lot.

Better cam like a solid or roller, More valve lift, springs, larger lighter valves etc, higher ratio rockers, better headers & exhaust, Head porting, more carb CFM, More compression, lighter components, Blower or N2O & more money.   3836bbl/Budnicks

+1 Bud and Joe,,,
money is needed to balance any build.
Skill rounding up power never hurts either.
