Re: What Next?

A box of animal crackers perhaps?

I guess the UDPs aren't too bad, but I'd only get the crank pulley. You can also get an offroad mid pipe for $200-$250.

Re: What Next?

I like the Mac Prochamber myself. In all reality, it's a sort of blend between an H-pipe and an X-pipe. You should listen to some clips of it.

But don't worry about comparing power numbers when shopping for an offroad pipe. Get what you think sounds best. Any gains one may have over the other is completely neglibible. These aren't 130 fwhp Scions we're dealing with here. You can stand to lose a hp or two for the sound you want.

Yup. And nope. The car is 600 miles away from me right now, and I have nothing to take one with either.

Re: What Next?

if it were me and I had it to do all over again, in the performance department i'd get some gt-40's gt-40p's or something really cheap since right now aluminum is out of the question. have them checked and put new seals in them, get some decent intakes (or leave the stockers for now) definetly leave the stock cam, I can't for the life of me understand why everyone keeps suggesting otherwise... apparently ill-experienced.

bolt that together and then start slowly saving cash for a blower....
that is the only true streetable and cheapest way to make power on a SBF, not that you can't do it otherways, but in the end the headache is much less.

plus once the blower is on there you'll be making enough power that if you choose to you can up the boost and split the stock block... if your end goal is to make more than enough power than that then your in a whole nother ball game and my advise would be to start saving for that DART

Re: What Next?

actually the typhoon is a copy of an edelbrock RPM which is a lil highstrung for the gt-40's and that is why I put the spacer on mine, it helped bring things back down to reality (the edel performer and RPM has the same size ports, just shorter runners on the RPM)

I made about 275 hp at the crank with my setup completely untuned (horrible air-fuel curve) some serious blow-by issues and a way out of wack valvetrain...we basically pulled the car off the dyno the second it started pukeing oil, I honestly believed i could have put down 250 to the wheels with that setup if everything was fixed right, and probably more like 270 or so if I ditched the ****ty E-cam... the intake head combination was not the problem.

regardless, I decided to address the problem, and while I was in there fix a few other things as well, since I can currently afford to.
I also decided to actually learn some things about building engines, I recommend anyone thats taking on a ford project pick up a few different books on rebuilding small block fords, those are worth their weight in gold.

take your time and choose what you want, personally if you've got all stock exhaust on your car now thats where i'd start with modifications, exhaust was one of the first few mods you do to a car with a really cool payoff, especially if you get rid of those cats... and you'll get a gain in power that kicks underdrive pullies ***'es to the curb

Re: What Next?

with less effort and strain (through less boost) on your 331, a lower amount of boost will = MUCH better gains than boosting a 306/ whatever

I've driven in an 8 PSI vortech 306 with edelbrock heads, decent cam, full tune/etc that put down slightly more HP to the wheels (almost equal torque) but it wasn't as effortless to drive, you had to rev it to get the power, and even then it just didn't feel as .... decent

Not bragging about my car or anything but... I'd much rather start with more displacement than start with boost and never feel like you have enough

(this goes without saying that I kinda needed a motor to begin with so I got a stroker short block..)

Re: What Next?

do heads before intake, but your end result goal should be matching:
exhaust (cat-back, mid pipe, shorties or long tubes)
heads
Trottle Body
MAF
Intakes

you can do a cam after you do heads and intake if you plan on staying N/A
most of the blower guys like the stock cam pretty well on a 302
