Brand new to the forum looking for some advice on how to get more power out of my engine!

It started its life out as a 1972 351c 2v and after an extensive rebuild including these parts and more:
Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

Camshaft:

I figure it is producing around 335bhp 390ft/lb, but would like a more. Any ideas based on the build (if i forgot anything essential please let me know) if I can add boost to the car? Or is nitrous my only option?

I built this engine with my Dad when I was 15 and had no knowledge of power adders, so I realize you should build your engine specifically for turbo/supercharger/nitrous, but based on what I have what are my options?

I am still learning, so any advice helps and I may be missing a lot of the basics on power adders so no response is too simple!

Thanks for the help!

Is it still a stock block? you mentioned nothing.
Well I'd say you had a very nice build, but why not have a dyno run.
the (R) code for 72 produced 275hp.. that is the 4v.
