Need suggestions on strengthening my Chevy nova for power

I have a 1970 chevy nova and Im just about finished putting together the gt45 turboed 355 abc thats in it just odds and ends left but before I start bringing it out to the track I wanna reinforce the gram a little because I don't wanna tie the at in a knot on the first day out I actually like the car lol... But as of now I have a coil spring rear suspension with a ladder bar and subframe connector those are the only chassis/suspension upgrades I have anybody out there with a fire breathing nova beast that has been reinforced for power please help me out ... Thanks in advance guys

frame strengthening

a roll cage strengthens the entire car from front to back.
a properly installed roll bar will strengthen the car above the frame connectors
