More power needed

I am running a ZZ4 385HP FastBurn engine in my 69Z. I have MSD6A, 600CFM Holly DP with bigger Jets, Thorely Headers, 2 1/2 Flowmaster Crossover exhaust, March Pullies and Crane Gold Race Rockers. I have never had it on a dyno but I am thinking I have somewhere around 415-425HP. I am looking for another 25-35HP without messing with the compression or changing heads.
Suggestions welcome.

Re: More power needed

Laughing gas would be easy...................

Do you have a cowl hood? If so, make sure to get air cleaner sealed so that it sucks in cool, fresh air. That alone might get you 25hp.

Check your timing curve, using a dyno. There's a lot of power to be had with properly adjusted ignition timing.
