what sort of a question is that come on.

well you can add a supercharger but not too much boost.

you can add exhausts, cai, there is lots of things you can do.

depends on what cam and and how the car is tuned that will give you power. my engine is very mild got some unknown billet cam, higher compression and a exhaust. and i have 170 rwhp. so not much at all power. although its tuned for fuel economy not power out put. but if you get a big lumpy cam and get a tune for power then you will get much more power. but wont be a very smooth ride

For an efi V8 without cracking open the donk you would chuck the power steer and clutch fan go the thermos and whack on the old extractors and twin cat exhaust into a three inch dump pipe into single 2.5 out back,then you would mod the bottom of the airbox by swiss cheesing it with a drill then you would take it to a dyno shop and have him make you a custom memcal.

He doesnt say,but with the carby its been covered before,stuff like exhaust,rochester blue print and match port the inlet manifold as well as the thermos etc,the good thing about the VL304 is the heads,small valve unleaded,still a V8 but not such a guzzler like a VK big valve head.

Boyracer;
Vl heads all came out with l34 size valves & induction hardened seats in the v8's it was only the vk's that had the smaller valves for the auto's, manuals had l34 or 1.94 in/1.6 ex. [talking about black motors pre efi]

Thats true because of all the emissions they had to have for the early developement of ulp.There an abortion to look at [motor] because all the emission hoses & crap everywhere.

When I brought my VL 5.0 it was a 122kw stocker and I was sure it was a small valve donk with an auto,the last time a carby donk had big valves was the VK with the manual,except HDTs,I am pretty sure on this
