    86\'k-5 blazer torque

    I am looking to get more torque out of my stock 305. HEI and 3" flowmaster(only mods.) Was thinking about a new intake with a little higher rise than the stock one. Any Ideas?? Really appreciated.

    A few bolt on things that will help build more torque:
    Headers
    Dual plane intake manifold Like a Edelbrock Performer(not RPM)
    MSD ignition/ coil
    A 350

    Duel exhaust with a cross over pipe is good for low end tq. The intake is always a good ideal but you would really want to get a cam to match. A good RV cam is where you really get you tq.

    Not much else you can do to a stock 305. Most of the stuff mentioned wont add much torque if any down low in the rpms with the exception of the cam. Headers will help build torque, but you will actually loose some torque below about 1500rpm. Some kind of ignition upgrade and a good air filter system will help too, but they will probably only add a few ponies. I know this is not what you want to here, but in order to make much low end torque you are going to have to scrap that 305. A stock 350 will spank any 305 that has every bolt on out there.

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.
