I'd be looking at more cam for starters. That cam i doubt will make power to 6000 and will limit max power.

Get a custom cam if you can 240-246 @ .050 107 c/l and around .600 lift and change the gears to the 3.27s if you have a 3 speed in it.

You have way to much compression for that cam.

Cam it to maximize power as an NA engine then add NOS with less ignition timing. Just did a 520 for a customer. Lobe sep 108. With a 120 shot the difference from peak NA power to peak NOS power at the exact same rpm was 118HP. It moved torque peak up 700 rpm on the NOS pull and made 166#/ft more torque.

NOS is a "Torque" maker so, cam it accordingly.
