Yeah. I wouldve really missed her. I cant wait to see how this things gona run with that five speed. Should get great gas mileage to. Plus later on im gona swap to an older model head so that i can change to a diff intake and carb. Kinda thought about doing a throttle body setup. First things first though

IF it is a clean swap an older head with the separate intake exhaust will run way better.
I dropped qa 69 6 in my 77 van that had the modular head 6 originally.
It was almost like swapping in a v/8. Very noticeable difference in power and low end torque.

Good to hear you are keeping her.

Call me next time you are passing through this way.

Ive been reading up on it and if i go with a 194 head on my 250 it bumps the compression up a pretty good bit. I hate the carb thats on this thing now and i dont like not having the option of changing intakes. May go ahead and change the cam while im at it. With all that being done and having that 5 speed it should cruise nicely
