What would it take...

Im just wondering what it would take to make a 3500 lb car run a flat 12? currently im a high 13 and im seeing what else i can do. I just put in a new 350 and a built 200-4r. This is my daily driver so no huge cams or anything....the current specs are as follows...

-350 2 bolt main bored .040 (357ci)
-All ARP fasteners
-Holley 600 cfm rejetted (#70 up front, #74 in the back)
-Holley High Flow Fuel Pump (mechanical)
-Edelbrock Performer Air Gap Intake
-Accel High Output Distributor
-MSD 8.5 Race Tailored Plug Wires
-Summit Aluminum 1.5 Roller Rockers
-Dart 64cc Iron Eagle Heads
-Stainless Steel 2.05 intake and 1.60 exhaust valves
-Keith Black Flat Top Pistons
-10.5:1 Compression Ratio
-Cast Crank and Rods
-Comp 274XE Cam (.490 lift 236 duration)
-Clevite Bearings
-Double Roller Timing Chain
-Hedman Headers
-2.5" Dual Exhaust with no catalytic converters and Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers.
-Richmond 3.73 Rear end ratio
-Eaton Posi Differential
-Built 200-4R Transmission
-2500 stall
-Griffin 4 Core Aluminum Radiator
-B&M Transmission Cooler
-B&M Ratchet Shifter
-Front and Rear Sway bars

I know for sure that carb is killin me, so i want to throw a 750 edelbrock on just really wondering how much of a difference it will make

Today i put 1.6 rockers on my intake, so now its a .520 on the intake side.

I dont want to use slicks, i want to be able to drive to the track and drive home w/out changin n e thing. Currently i have 255 BF goodrich radial TAs...they hook really good surprisingly

If anyone has ideas for anything that would really help. My main curiosity though is just how much of a difference that 750 will make.

Thanks a lot
