Post Cheap Horsepower

Hope I'm not repeating too many questions here but I put in a search for carb spacers and didn't come up with much and you guys sure seem to know your way around performance issues.

I've got a 350 hp L-82 thats a beautiful beast. I've got it in a 76 Toyota landcruiser FJ40 4x4. I gave an '80 Vette a good run for his money last night, boy was he stoked about not being able to blow me off. Anyways... I'm looking for cheap horsepower and I'm hoping you guys can yay or nay my ideas. Would these improvements be worth it? Not in any particular order.

1) Carb spacer 3/4 - 1" 4 hole?
2) 1:5 roller rockers
3) Jacobs ignition system
4) Power pulleys
5) K&N Air Filter
6) Edelbrock Injection system

Anything else I should consider?


when i die i want to go like my grandmother, peacefully in her sleep. Not screaming like the passengers in her car.
