My fire breathing 3.5l v8 is a bit low on power and I am trying to squeeze some more oh of it. It is an early example (low compression) (stromberg carbs) (approx. 114hp). Someone recommended I swap out the intake manifold and carburetors. To do this operation, what will I need.

thanks. I have already looked through those. I am actually wondering about which products to use. Edelbrock vs Weber, what do I need for the conversion, which filter, etc.

Sorry about that. I have been told that you'll need a new coolant hose, and to go edelbrock with an electric choke. Let us know how it goes- I'll be going the same route before long...
