200 RWkW Out Of Carby 304

hey everyone just want to find out what i need to do to my engine to get around 200rwkw

its a 304

flat top pistons running 10:1 ratio 40 tho

roller rockers

stage 2 crow cam (unsure of specs)

bottom end is all balanced and blue printed

genie pipes

2/5 Exhaust

Roll master timing chain

quaddy carby ( was hoping to keep quaddy due to legal issues with hollys

brock inlet manifold

l34 heads witch have had some work done to them (port and polish)

l34 torona fuel pump . picked this up from speed parts and the bloke there said there meant to be better then the standard 308 pump

auto is a trimatic but standard, looking into a stally and manual valve body and shiftkit

diff is a 10 bolt salsbury with 3.0.8 gears

Youll need quite a cam... probably easier with a solid as long as youve got the supporting gear. Give it plenty of fuel, up the carby to something larger, are the heads ported? Which manifold?

Look at doing the auto / stall and definately diff gears...

Depending how 'hot' the motor is now its probably not too hard to give it a decent kick up to 200rwkw.

Keep the quadrajet but give it a good tune and maybe some small mods, you should definatley ditch the mech fuel pump as the quaddy will empty out quick under load. wack in the elec pump (somthing like Holley blue) with regulator and that should be fuel system sorted

You will need a crane 286 or 304a to make that much power.
My brock makes 187rwkw with a crane 286.
looking a your specs you will need a bigger cam you should make the power wthout a solid.
