Might want to start with a compression test to get a better idea of the internal shape of your engine. If there are any issues then fix them, if not then mod away as you like.

Pull a valve cover and see what's inside the engine. You may want to think about an engine flush if there's too much gook, or a rebuild/new crate (331 or 347 would be good).
