Stock 350; What can I do on a budget?
I have an early 70's 350 block with matching pistons and crank which are all stock except for the cam, which is a Comp Cams Xtreme Energy 262. The heads were taken from an early 90's small block and are the center bolt style but I am not too sure on their exact specs. The intake is an aluminum Edelbrock Victor Jr and is topped with a plain jane quadrajet. What are some simple power producing changes I could make to squeeze a few more horse power out of the engine without spending a fortune? I have been told the centerbolt heads suck and so I was thinking about upgrading the heads but could I get away with leaving the stock crank and pistons in it? Someday I want to do it right and make it a 383 stroker but that won't be for a couple years or so. What does everyone think?
