wouldnt a turbo work. i think you can get one for around 700$. Carbrator change. Or put some headers on it to match your flows. just some ideas for ya.

Hell, kid you paid your dues, and thank you for your patience.

If you're really into speed, google Artie AArfons and "Spirit of America".

Now getting a jet engine from an airlines junkyard is going to be a little tricky, but you'll never have to worry about your differential ratio EVER again...

Uhm, could always change it to a V8... go big or go home... haha.. 4.3L use the same 350 rebuild kits. I like the idea of a turbo tho, maybe a twin?
