The mighty six has turned 8.44 at 160 mph in a '36 Chevy pickup! On DOT tires!

BigEd36 In addition to Clifford Performance and Langdon's Stovebolt Engine Co. already mentioned here are some other sites devoted to inline 6 performance and parts.

Inliners International devoted to all Inline powered vehicles

Autowerks - 250/292 products

Info about lump heads for the inline sixes

Bobby, don't discount the capabilities of the Chevy sixes, they're great little engines. Cams and other parts are available to really make 'em go! For an example, the attachment is a screen shot from the Howards Cams catalog with the listings for 194, 230, and 250 sixes. (In these listings the "Note 1" at the right means "Stock (O.E.) valve springs can not be used".

Ibet that HEI really helped. Doubled the voltage to them plugs probably improved fuel economy too...well maybe not with that Offie intake. LOL

RWENUTS More six banger stuff.
My old 65 with a 230 I ran a set of Langdon's cast iron headers, HEI, and Offy intake and holley 350 2 bbl.
Greatest improvement was from the HEI.

F1 Owner Hi Bob, & welcome !!!
Try linking Clifford Performance :: Make 6 = 8 they truly are 6 banger performance wizards. They have oodles of 64 & up Chevy 6 hop up parts.
Hope that helps . Rick

vinniekq2 The six is a great engine.It does not make huge power due to the head design.Open up the exhaust and if you can find a 4 bbl intake that helps a lot.

Hi Bob,
Of course you can liven up the cam a little. Depends on how you use your truck, but if you're just looking for a little better throttle response and low end torque you can something along the lines of a Comp Cam High Energy cam...great little cam. I use them in a couple of my work trucks and they perform better then stock and actually seem to have improved fuel mileage also. really doesn't have that lopey idle...pretty smooth with just a barely audible skip in the idle
