Unless you are ready to ditch the 5.2L and go for a forged 408 stroker based on the 360 Magnum engine, you won't get any high HP. The 318 is a fine engine but, like the GM 305, not really a good candidate for building a high performance engine.

Even if you were to put a nitrous kit or some form of forced induction on the engine, it won't make a ton of power...for long.

Options for making some better power on an all motor basis are:

Cam
Headers
High flow catalytic converter
Better flowing Y-pipe or true dual exhaust
Higher ratio rocker arms
Port and polish the heads
Custom PCM program

just to name a few.

Nice looking truck, have to agree with Michael on dumping lots of $$ into the engine. His list is a fairly standard list.
