12 seconds street Nova

okay I have a 68 chevy nova. it is a street car that gets me to and from work daily (37 rndtrip 33 of which are highway miles). I want it to b in the 12 second range when I take it 2 the test and tune next year when the track reopens.
@ the moment the car still has its original 307 w/ powerglide, open differential, and I guess the 2.73 gears, but the speedometer is off when I'm cruising. my gps says I'm doin 72, when my speedometer says 60. soo I don't kno if they have been changed or what's goin on with tht. but with all of tht and 110 gas @ the track I ran 16.92. 17.23's on unleaded.

To help me make this goal more reachable me and my dad rebuilt a very PURE stock 400 sbc. cst # 3951511. stock bottom end refreshed with new rings and rod bearings. a double roller timing chain, edelbrock rpm intake, 750 qjet, and comp cam with 488/510 lift. and ported the stock heads tht came with it. and a pair of headers off jegs.

SO MY QUESTION IS WHAT ELSE SHOULD B DONE BETWEEN NOW AND TRACK TIME TO KEEP IT A STREET DRIVER BUT BE IN THE 12's.

I have my mind on a 3.42range gears and getting tht posi. plus a 350 tranny and maybe some heads but not sure what kind.. but after that I'm stumped


help me out if you have a Nova, know about 400's or just something helpful in general.
if your car is in the 12's( SMALL BLOCK CHEVY ONLY) what setup are yu running with.
and remember this is a STREET CAR 70MPH CRUISES.
