So here's the deal, I have a stock 318, in a mostly stock 1984 Dodge D150, and simply put, this V8 would make the Warboys of the Mad Max universe laugh, or cry, or both. It's got vacuum issues, I need to check the distributor advance, and I feel like the only reason it's running at all is because the previous owner put a cap, rotor, plugs, wires, and an ignition control box on it. I am replacing the timing chain and redoing the exhaust soon. The timing chain will be replaced by a Sealed Power CTS3000 kit, and I'm planning on going for a high flow cat and Cherry Bomb shorty glasspack in 2.5 inch exiting out in front of the passengers side tire. I know these two things alone will wake the engine up, but how about a 4bbl intake and Holley carb? New distributor too? I don't like rebuilding distributors. Are factory 4bbl Thermoquads any good? I know someone who rebuilds carbs, so a used one is probably gonna be the solution. I know with GM the Quadrajets are loved and hated equally, I always liked the absurd secondaries kicking the crap out of the engine. But I know nothing about the Thermoquads. Or could I go cheaper and slap on a 500CFM 2bbl that's a bit better? Is the mounting pattern for a Chrysler intake standard size? So yeah, in short, I want more power out of this engine, how do I make more power? Headers are a no go, not spending that kind of money on them or a mini starter. Thanks in advance, I got up to some shenanigans in my '77 Olds, and this truck ought to fill that void nicely if I can just wake the 318 up, it feels like it's sleeping. Fuel economy, who needs it? Power and noise, that' the way I like 'em.
