How can you add horsepower to a stock Chevy 350 without spendin a lot of money?
Replace the top end of your engine, first find a clean used
edelbrock carb and intake on craigslist, shouldn't cost more then
100-150 for both. cause i bet you got some rochester quadrajet
sittin there right now, its garbage trash throw it away or you
might be able to sell it for 20 bucks. another nice thing is a new
air filter . next is heads, you can find a used pair of 305 heads
in a junkyard or again on craigslist for around 75 dollars. 305
heads are smaller then 350 heads and create a higher compression.
but this depends on you because heads sound like a big deal to some
people( its just some bolts) but if you do the heads intake and
carb all at the same time its easy. just get a friend and spend a
couple days removing and replacing your top end itll be fun and
afterwards itll be like a brand new engine. If you don't know cars
you can find some mechanics thatll come to you charge you around
100 dollars( any more then tell em to kick rocks) and will only
take them a couple hours with the right tools. so 225 for parts
another 50 for head bolts and new gaskets, 275 do it yourself 375
being a lazy bitch. another thing you can do for free is saw zaw
your mufflers off so you have straight pipes chances are your
mufflers have holes in em anyway. it will be loud and not road
legal but no police are lookin under your car they don't care.
replacing pipes is the last thing you wanna do, you cant do that
yourself so youll have to pay a shop to do it and that's still not
gonna make up for cheap stock gm parts, taking your mufflers off
will already be increasing airflow.
