hp on a 1997 new holland 8870

hello, I would like to get 230-240hp out of this tractor and am wondering how the best way to go about doing this would be. it is currently dyno at a small 200. I do not want to take any chances on breaking anything or causing premature wear on anything. Please let me know the experiences others have had with this situation and thoughts from others that are more familiar with these tractors than I am

Pretty much stuck putting more fuel to it as it’s a mechanical engine unless you’re going to get deep in it. I think they are pretty much the same as the 8970 so probably be pretty safe
