Easy things - put battery in trunk, line rear bumper w/ lead, remove weight (remove sheet metal, add fiberglass) from fromt of car.

More work - Install a bigger engine, higher RPM range cam and proper higher stall speed torque converter. Lower rear gears always works. Move rear axle forward.

it also helps if you make sure your engine is secured to your frame with a little more then those usually oil soaked rubber mounts, in my 1971 nova i pulled a tear in my hood when i opended the throttle i fixed the enginemounts with solid selfmade bushing and welded my own mounts, this kept the motor in place and helped me lift my frontwheels a lot easier.
