How many miles do you have on your engine? Are alot highway?
If your racking up alot of miles on the bottom end you should really start with that first.

For that amount I would say a few HiPo stickers would net at least 50 hp'*.
A coffee can muffler would net another 50 hp'*. One of those big monster tacometers seems to add at least 50. Your horsepower may vary
Check e-bay for actual horsepower figures. From what I've been hearing from the rice crowd, 10 second quarters are just a spray can away .....
