Kind of hard to say when we don`t know what mods are done to the engine
plus you didn`t say if it was a olds, buick, pontiac or chevy 350.
However, if the engine is stock the answer comes out the same.
Stock engine: Edelbrock Performer or Weiand Action Plus and a Quadrajet carb.

Depends on what you want the motor to do.

I want it to look nice for shows but I also want it to have a kick if I decide to stomp on it

Then that kick depends on what you want it to do and how much money you got to spend. Has the engine been overhauled? How many miles are on it?
Depending on how much you want to dress it up also costs money.
Edelbrock offers the "enduroshine" to there intakes which indeed looks real nice but adds about another $100 to the price. Jet Hot coated headers run around $400 to $500. However, if you take your time and do it right on the stripping and painting of the parts you can make it look really nice without spending alot of cash. The prep is the key.

I have access to great paints at my work for nothing so basicly I'm just after parts that give the motor a kick for ur buck. I have no idea the millage, and the guy I bought it off of said his father said it was borred .30 over but he didn't think it was and idk if you can tell without cracking it open. Basic mechanic right here haha
