I would try to hook up my transmission and rear end before trying to modify the engine. I mean, if you're gonna rebuild it the comments listed here are great ways to build power. But if you have some power and a crappy drivetrain you will not feel it.
Depending upon how much power you have, decide between using the original 8" rear end or going to a stronger 9" version. Either way, pick out some gear ratios based on what you want the car to do. If you just drive it one day a week go for some 4.11's, but if you drive it every day opt for some 3.00's.
Also your transmission has gear ratios inside it. So you should pick the best transmission for your needs. I personally like the T5 5speed manual trans. With one of these you can run gears like 3.73, 3.89, or even 4.11's and haul ass.
Also try to totally rebuild your front and rear end suspension as well as the brake system. It's no fun to have lots of power and crash into a telephone pole :D
