Pro's only please, I have a single pump regal on 13z and I wanted to know what I could do to get more power from my motor. I can't afford a 350 right now and need some professional opinions on if I should do headers, cam, intake and 4 bbl carb with MSD ignition. Is it worth it or just suffer till I can get a 350 installed.

Im not a pro but if I were you I would get a small 4 bbl carb 650+/- that way you can reuse it on the next motor, since you know thats what youre doing anyway. But a cam would be the cheapest/best way to wake up the v6.

The Buick 231 is a good engine, IF you do the correct things to it...

I've got an air-fed ( ;) ) one that I'd run against any 350 :biggrin: Hit up the Grand National sites for the "before black" areas (those were carbed engines...) They'll give you a good "recipe" to get that fucker churning :thumbsup:

An old mechanic told me you get the most bang for the buck from more fuel.  Bigger intake and carb.

He's right... It's like a sprinter, more air in, more air out (so don't forget exhaust ;) )

I'll take $50 plus shipping for my Offenhauser, or I'll take $25 plus shipping for my factory 4 barrel aluminum intake  :cool:
