Corvette Joe

For the last 3 years I own a 4spd 1974 corvette with an L82 original engine. I have added an Edelbrock Preforer Manifold and 600 cfm carb, Headman headers and converted the ignition from points to elestronic (Ingnitor 2), the rest is stock with the drive line being matching numbers in great condition. The car drives great but occasionaly I still feel the need for some more power. Some of my friends say keep as is and some others say go all the way and upgrade the engine so it will have the extra power but will still be streetable(heads, cams etc.). My concern is that once upgraded the engine there will be no end to additional parts replacement (carb, suspension, radiator etc.) what should I do ?????
