Building 3.8 Buick

I have in my 1935 Ford Sedan a 1980 Buick 3.8, 30 thousands over and ported heads with four barrel, 2004R trans and 3.35 rear. Lost either a cam or lifter and plan to rebuild but I want more power with smooth driveability and fuel economy. At least 250 hp and 25 mpg. Planning on TA Performance aluminum heads but open to suggestions. Would like someone to built to my specs. but can do myself if need be. Thanks in advance

get a used supercharged 3800 engine, pulley swap, headers, bolt it to a T5. all your goals were just met for little over a grand.

your heads will cost more than that alone.
