engine will not spin above approx 4000rpm

hey guys i need a little help for the last couplke weeks ive been trying to get my nova to perform ... its a sbc 355 with a stock small block cam stock heads single plane intake manifold powerjection 3 efi msd e curve distributor and a gt45 turbo... since i got it on the road i feel its been way down on power...i was hoping for AT LEAST 500 hp it makes some torque not what i would expect but i was expecting a lot more up top and going down the road ive been pretty scatterbrained trying to check everything out at the same and im fried... my lastest discovery is that with my foot to the floor the car other reaches 4000 rpm it shoots a little above probably because of the inertia of the rotating assembly... obviously something is dropping out... any help is apprecciated
