I'm with k-star, get yourself a good set of closed chamber Oval Port heads and an oval port Performer RPM and sell the rectangular ports and intake to someone building a high rpm drag motor. The closed chamber oval ports will bring your mixture velocity up and pring back some of your bottom end, don't worry the oval ports flow pretty decent clear up to 6500. Compression might be a problem so you might want to consider shaving a little off the heads to squeeze a little more out of it with that cam to get more bottom end back. On the other hand you may not want a lot more bottom end, I see traction being an issue.

Otherwise it looks good and I think you're looking at easy 13's if you can get it to hook..... and that's WITHOUT nitrous.
