He ran it on pump gas for almost 20yrs up until about 6 months ago when he built a 383. I paid $600 for this motor. You don't think it would be worth it to just put a dual plane intake and 750 carb on it? In part, my thinking is... having 170hp or so more than I had, even if it can't perform to it's "full potential" will feel better than what I have. Even if I don't change anything else, as long as it's not going to destroy the motor. If you go from a good running factory straight 6 to a small block v8 smogger it's still going to be more fun.
