get a set of 180cc darts or afrs with 64cc chambers.

use an edelbrock rpm intake with a holley 750 3310

compcam 270H

1-5/8 long tube headers, x pipe, 2-1/2 pipe with dynomax super turbos

hei ignition

The above set-up will work well with a close ratio 4 speed with a 3.55 gear

or a wide ratio with a 3.36 gear.

use zddp oil additive at each oil change ( )

Install a 3.75 stroke and make 17% more power over the 3.25 stroke. That is like a free 60hp shot of n02.

for long highway trips, use 9 to 9.25:1 cr, compcam 260H, 3.08 gear, and a wide ratio 4 speed.
While that is a good cruising comob with mild street manners it won't beat the ricers. Not a bad daily driver combo though.

Another thought if you just want a good daily driver is to do a basically stock short block rebuild, use steel shim head gaskets, ported 416 heads with a larger intake valve (small chamber with good flow), an RPM intake, headers, and a cam around 220/225 duration @ .050", it'd be cheap, and yet a great street package using mostly stock parts.
