    Headers, Cam, Ignition etc. Depends on what you use it for and if you want more Horsepower Torque or both, and how much you want to spend. You could even stroke it.

    <font color="green"> I have the base 350 GM crate motor too. I changed the cam in it before I even put it in the truck, put on a Performer intake, headers and a decent ignition system. The engine runs great and has lots of power, although once the power makes it through the 465 and 38" tires there's not a hell of a lot left of it. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif </font color>
