Default Most reliable power out of a 91 OHV?

Considering building this engine up or a swap. If I was to rebuild it and do little power adderrs where should I stop? Considering forced induction but Can this motor handle that? Thank you very much!

Headers, port/polish heads and upper/lower intake manifolds, replace hydrolic lifters, pushrods, and rockers while you're in there. You can cam it, there's some decent cams out there for this engine. I wouldnt bore the cylender walls IMO. Dont do Cold air intake, it does nothing. Same for throttle body spacers. Get a bigger throttle body if you feel like it. DUI ignition system, double platinum plugs, throttle cable mod. I could go on and on. Just depends on what you feel like spending
