1977 230 gasser, exploiting these 4 cylinders to their fullest

I have a '77 230 gasser, it's a carburated 4cylinder gas engine.

I've been doing a lot of carburator treatments, rinsing a quart or tow extra oil through the engine when I change the oil and its been running smoother and faster every time. When I got it I'd be flooring it all the time and hardly going anywhere, now the pedal barely ever touches the floor unless I'm driving like a dick.

It's obviously never gonna be super fast, so I guess my question is what can I do to get it running at it's full potential? Anyone with experience restoring w123 gas engines?

Anyone know how to check for transmission slip??
