My thoughts are:
Don't change a thing.

[edit, after seeing bhoylegend's post]
I thought you folded to the shove.
You have to put $4.20 to get a pot of $5.70 = 0.50 + 1 + 4.2 (his effective bet). I wouldn't like my odds here.

Plugging in the absolute worst case scenarios of all the overpairs, sets, better flush draws and no spew at all we have 45% equity.

I like how you are hopefully playing it when you call his shove

Just call the flop.
When you smash the flop this hard, it's really hard for villain to be ahead, but when he is ahead, you're in trouble. Ergo, raising is a mistake, since it folds out worse hands and gets actions from monsters.
You'll obviously have a lot of equity when villain shoves his set, overpair or NFD, but you're not actually going to be a favourite against his range as a whole, so you're just flipping in a needlessly high variance situation.
