ford 300 6 mileage/little extra power build
I got a 85 f150 2wd with a 300 straight six that needs a clutch the other day and i figure when i fix the clutch i will pull the motor and do some things to it to mainly get better mileage and also have a little extra power to keep up with stock pre-1996 350 chebbies rated at around 200 horse, dont need to beat em just dont want to be made a fool of by them.
I,m figurin on getting some efi manifolds, do a little port work, maybe an aftermarket 4 bbl intake and carb or 2 bbl adapter and carb, a mild cam, get rid all the smog crap, a free flowing fairly quiet exhaust system, and a real good tune up, the truck only has 70k on it so im hoping things are pretty solid yet im gonna do some inspecting tonight, compression check etc.. im just looking for suggestions.
i would ask on the performance six website but it doesnt seem to be working.
