im sure 350 is possible im no expert but the first thing i would do is get some headers a new intake manifold and carburetor you could also change the heads and the cam without removing thhe engine but you dont want to have to much horsepower on stock parts on the bottom end. What i plan on doing with my truck is to slowly build a second engine as i get the time and money and switch them out when its done that way my truck wont be out of action for more than a couple days.
