Skies the limit, intake upgrades, cam, exhaust. What's your budget and what's your goal, hp level, what car is it going in, what trans, etc.? Most of all, what's your budget, it looks like maybe relatively low?

Ok please consider the following:

If you CAN do engine work do these:
-Camshaft (Good timing)
-Flattop pistons
-Distributer
-Intake Manifold

For low end stuff: (Get all these from Summitracing.com, amazing prices! All these proces are from summit.)
-Headers ($150)
-Cat delete
-Aftermarket exhaust ($300)
-Quadrajet Carb (Will save gas too ) (Buy one used and rebuild it if you can)
-KN Air Filter/Cleaner ($45)
-Spark Plugs($10-50)
-Spark Plug Wires( $50)
-X Pipe for the exhaust system (Can build yourself)
-Change out rear gear to high 3's ($200ish)

Thats my 2 cents


All a matter of how big your pocket is!

Do you have only the block?, no crank or rods?
