Get an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap Intake, a set of cheap headers, an X-pipe, and some Dynomax Exhuast with about 2.5 inch piping. Call up Crane or Comp Cams tell them what you have and they will Custom Grind you a cam.  It should be less than $300.00.  After all that, bring it to someone who knows the ins and out of a SBC and have them Dyno Tune it.  You will be able to get another 50+ horsepower when it's all said and done.  All depending on what kind of Carb is on there (you don't want to go too big)
