Hey...honestly there are a couple of guys running straight sixes on their rail dragsters and putting them into the 8's in the 1/4. Thats impressive!

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

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".

About as aerodynamic as a barn!!
What's that??? LOL!!!

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

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.

|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.|

welcome to the forum.I hope you enjoy it here.Tell us about your truck and what you expect? Im sure we can toss a few good ideas out there.
also state what you are looking for in the way of performance?
|02-01-2013 05:22 PM|
Six banger or smallblock.

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. But...it really doesn't have that lopey idle...pretty smooth with just a barely audible skip in the idle
