high horsepower 357ci build

I have a '72 357ci cleveland 4v CJ 4 bolt main block. Right now it is just a street car, performer intake, 750cfm vac. sec. carb. I just joined the army and when i get my signing bonus my wife is letting me spend it all on my car. I want to go big, really big. I just dont want to break the bottom end, it is all new, stock stuff, and only has about 30,000 miles on it and is in great shape.

Any suggestions on what I should buy? This is the car I drive everyday but driveablity isnt an issue with me. If it has a license plate that makes it streetable enough for me. I just cant have the car down for too long as it is my driver.

The car has a TCI C6 transmission, 9inch ford 4.11 gear with locker. msd ignition, electric fuel pump.

I was thinking chi heads, intake, 750cfm double pumper, solid roller camshaft, big stall. what do you think? how high can i go with the rpm???

the car is a 3900 lb mustang that as of now does 9.04@78 mph (1/8th) I would like to at least go mid 7's.

Sorry for the kinda long post, any help or info is greatly appreciated

9.04@78 mph (1/8th)
