Hi everyone, Need some advice. I have a '57 Plymouth with a bad engine (301). I also have a 318 engine out of a '59 Plymouth that is very good for rebuild. This engine is suppose to be a 318 power pac but I don't know what all that changes about the 318. It does have a 4-barrel carb. Now the questions: I plan to rebuild this engine and want a good amount of power - in other words, I plan to juice it up a little. Do any of you have any suggestions as how to do this with this particular engine? Bore it out? Different cam? Head work? Ignition? Carburation changes? The car currently has dual exhaust. Any help will be appreciated. chuck
