It definently will help you sincec you have a supercharger. I would go with a smaller shot than you originally planned if you get this done.

definitly colder plugs, as far as porting the heads, with nitrous, you are makeing the air charge more dense, so it isnt needed, but as far as power. airflow is the key with any engine.
an engine is nothing more than an air pump, the more air that it can get in and get out, the more power it has
