Sure there`s a way to give that six shooter more power, drop in a 350. Problem solved. Straight six shooters were never made with power in mind. I`m not sure if clifford performance is still around or not but they used to make performance pieces for straight sixes such as cams, intakes and etc.
If the carbs jetting is correct then rejetting it isn`t going to give it anymore power. You have to consider, your dealing with a 1 barrel, it`s flow is very very poor and flow is power. The intake design is out to lunch as well, if it has the integrated intake and exhaust manifold this is also defeating the purpose as it makes the intake get hot. Offenhauser makes intakes for these engines where you can bolt on a small four barrel carb and I believe there are some 2 barrel intakes out there also. Six shooters are good for torque, not much else.
