hard tospeculate et the motor unless u take the engine ota the bay n directly hook it up to an enfine dyno.. 130rwkw is my guess... try a mandrel bend intake n cold air intake.. unichip,motc.ems? vernier cam gear... dyno tune? port/polish?

if the head gasket is getting changed have the head shaved about 20 to 30thou and use an AU headgasket to bring the compression up.

you'll pick up power across the entire rev range and also gain some fuel economy.
