For the amount of work and fittings required to modify the existing baseboard I think you would be better off replacing it with something that has the necessary output.
Get a backpack flame thrower and be done with it.

Turn the temperature up on the boiler and see if that solves the problem before you invest more time in this. I have slantfins, it works.
