the problem is your pistons arnt gonna take to boost well. they have too high of compression. You would have to either build the block or swap a turbo block into it. In which case its pretty much worthless to waste the time and money when you could just buya turbo model. IMO i wouldnt bother trying to boost what you have

you've put yourself in a pickle. i can see the dilema. the valves/retainers really won't help you much on an N/A applications w/o some better compression so you really woudln't be losing much to sell the n/a and get a turbo'd model.
