Question Trying To Save Some Money

I have a 1979 Nova and it has the original inline-6 still in it and runs very well. The question is this: How much power could be gotten from the inline-6???

unfortunately, not much. At least, not much on a budget. If you want a cheap upgrade, find a used 350 (try to get one with a roller block) and dump that in there when you get the money. It will be the cheapest upgrade to get some more power

My main problem is not so much finding a cheap way to make power but in finding the material that is needed without paying the manufacturer costs on some of the blocks that I've seen.

look at crate motors, or look for cars or trucks that have been crashed or are rusting out, but the running gear is still fine.
