1964 Chev Impala 283 6-71 blower

Hello fellow Hot Rodders. My name is Marty. I live in Vegrevilla, AB., just outside of Edmonton. I am a new member to Hot Rodders. I am looking forward to enjoying the Hot Rodders site and Forum. I would like to ask a question to all the membership. I have a 1964 original 283 2 barrell engine in my Impala. Which would be the best way to increase Horse Power and torque in my car. I was thinking of installing a used 6-71 blower on my 283, with two 4 barrel carbs, then headers, through my powerglide, or a used 4 barrel 283 chev intake manifold with a 4 barrel carb. The 283 engine is old, and will probably only last the summer-fall, before it is done. Then I would like to put the blower or 4 barrel carb & intake onto another Chev sb, that I want to install in the car in the winter. Let me know what you think. Cheers and cee yaa on the road! Marty.

welcome...I would just drive the 283, find another engine...350 and build it. Like you said, the 283 is old and beat.....try to get any power out of it as is and you will blow it sky high......
