Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1981 ford bronco I brought back from the grave. It is a 300 Straight 6. I was
wondering if I should get a newer more efficient carb or stick with original carb that came
with it? The carb is rebuilt I need to tune timing and carb and check on breaks for one thing.
Other then the carb another hunints?
