That all depends on what you're using the car for and what type of control you need over the advance curve. You may have to do some shopping to find the one that fits best for your application. A 351W? Cool! Was it difficult to make it fit in the engine compartment or is it a total custom job?


Thanks for responding, it wans't to hard to swap it. Just a few changes on the fuel lines and still have some room to fit something. I am trying to use the car just for racing. More like a very fast street strip car. I also have a 6al msd ignition installed and the stock distributor. They sell a few packages for msd but i really dont know what to use. Also i have a edelbrock performer intame manifold i was looking to buy a victor junior but im not sure if im making the correct desicion or if the distributor and intake have to actually have some type of matching or i can just put anything. I have future plans on turbo charging this block. Any suggestion? Thank you.


MSD billet


An msd billet will do the job with any horse power or future turbos installment? Also what can i do to make my belt drive systen serpentine since i have the old ones? What changes do i have to do for a correct fitment?
