AMC 232 Rebuild

I have AMC 232 built in 1971 (casting number 403E24).

What is the difference (other than displacement) between the 232 and 258???

I want to overhaul it and need some advice.

What can I do for a good head upgrade?? Get the head rebuilt or would the 4.0L head converstion work???

As far as a manifold, do them make an aftermarket intake manifold for the AMC 232??? Would the intake manifold for and AMC 258 work???

Thanks

4.0L wont work holes dont match up right. if you want power outta it offenhauser makes a 4 barrel intake for the 258 might work with the 232 or keep it stock and go with the weber carb. i have a 258 with a shaved head dui ignition weber carb and dual outlet headman headers and i could spin 33-13.50s with 3.52 gears and a 3 speed... i also have some parts a motors when it comes to the straight 6

Well.. I think I am just going to bore and deck the block, deck the head and get a 3 way angle job, put the money into getting the engine balanced, and putting good parts into it. I have a weber 38 outlaw with a jet pack and headers on it. I just need to get a nice intake to fit that weber on it.

That will be good enough for me.
