Another newbie checking in

I've been looking at this site a while now, and thought I'd join up to learn and share, mostly learn. I've got a 1976 F250, 2WD w/ a 460/c6. My grandparents bought this truck new, I can remember being 3 years old and sitting next to Grandpa driving and my Dad sitting shotgun. I've had her now the last 13 years. I love my truck, we have been through alot together, she's more like a old friend. My kids dig riding in it! Here are a few stats:
*Original 460 is gone, replaced w/ earliar 70's 460
*Edelbrock heads and intake
*comp cam and roller rockers
*Holley 770
*MSD
*Dual Flowmaster
*4" Autofab lift w/ 35's (yep, 35's on 2wd!)
Any help or tips on keepin my truck up to snuff will be welcomed! Thanks

Horsepower is fun, but torque get's it done.

the dynomax mufflers will probably bring the power up by around 25-30 hp and torque. sound is subjective but i personally think they sound better. http://www.dynomax.com/soundsofdynomax.php is their sound clip shop
