yes it will but be warned, if you do this all the time the car wont take too much abuse. the you will have to do a v8 swap. and you dont need to do anything to the engine. take left foot stand on brake. take right foot mash on gas! if car creeping foward feather the brake pedal. been there, done that.
The fact you still have a stock 6 is shocking. The V-8 conversion is the usual solution. I'd change the card the carb to a 4 bbl and and headers to the 6 to juice things. As nitrous set up could be a option.
