I got this '78 Lincoln. I LOVE driving it. Just a totally different experience than a modern vehicle. It rides like a 5,000 lb cloud. It's kindof slow on takeoff, due to being severely detuned and smogged. It's scheduled to get an aluminum intake, dual exhaust, new carb (maybe an efi), lose the smog stuff in March. I'm thinking of heads, but I really just want to wake it up a little. I don't mind spending money, but I got it to Cruise around at moderate speeds. Should I do heads

? Which ones.

Personally I’d stay with you’re current plan and add a pre-smog timing set to put the cam timing back where it should be. Also figure out what gear ratio is in the rear end, if it’s a 2.73 you could step it up to a 3.00 or 3.25 and gain some mechanical advantage without adding more power. This will increase you’re cruising RPM so you have that to consider.
