Natuarlly in my limited knowledge I thought well a new intake and the biggest carb on the planet will fix any low performance I was getting from my motor. When I say low performance I mean it ran sluggish, had a horrible exhaust, and wasn't pretty to look at. Well I dropped $800 bucks into a Edelbrock Performer Intake, Edelbrock 4 Barrel Carb, and aluminum valve covers!
Now for this money I could have gone with a junk yard throttle body system and had far better capability when it came to rock climbing and getting verticle. Wished I could do that one over kids!
Here are the before and afters.
