I need help with a 305

I need help upping HP from a 1981 305 v8, what kind of suggestions do people have? i was thinking thinking maybe a cam/lifter for it, I was wondering what i should do for pistons to maybe increase the Compression ratio.

+3. Go to Summit or any site of your choice and get a crate motor. Drop it in and you're good to go.

+ 1000! And it's cheaper if you find one that was recently rebuilt.
