6 Cylinder Engine upgrades

Looking to see what kind of upgrades that some of you have done to your 6 cylinder Stang. I have a 68 200. I have seen an adapter to upgrade to a 2v Holley or Weber carb. Have seen a few dual outlet headers. Looking for a good camshaft and dual exhaust. Currently my baby is getting her body restored and painted her original diamond blue.

Here's all you need. The only limit is your budget. Buy the book "The Ford Falcon Six Cylinder Performance Handbook" first. It's also available at the link below.

http://www.classicinlines.com/home.asp

Late model cylinder head with porting and larger valves, modified to fit a 2V carb. Camshaft of your choosing. Dual out header with dual exhaust. Electronic ignition. Build a solid bottom end. Everything you need is on the website. They also have an aluminum head that allows you to use different intake manifolds.
