These engines are pretty stout. Only real issue is the plenum gasket likes to leak oil into the intake.

I'd just do a tune up with new distributor cap, rotor, plugs, and wires. Intake and exhaust are nice, but don't really add much power. These Magnums do sound good with a good muffler/exhaust, though.
