If I were you i would build the bottom end of my engine and try to improve the torque so that it will be a little easier to get that beast rolling.

Well, since it is a 351W and you want torque... stroke it baby!

An intake will help a little, and NOS is always fun, but there is nothing like the low end grunt given by a longer crank throw.
