You can find some power with this combo for not much cash.I would tear it down to a shortblock and send the heads out for a competition valve job and bowl blend and have the springs checked.Swap out the factory cam for a 502/502 cam,or similar grind,and add a performer rpm airgap intake and 850 cfm double pumper.With 1 7/8" headers this is a solid 500 hp combo or even a tad more.All the above will cost you under $1000 and give you 502/502 performance for a few bucks less.Good luck.
