    sitting on a 4.3L vortec (94 Jimmy SLE) has been switched over from automatic to 5 speed and new engine. replaced a few gaskets so far. I want to add HP as well but not thinking 300 maybe a few less ponies would suffice. ... suggestions that would help both of us maybe ?

    just to let you know, chrome actually DOESNT make any more horsepower than regular painted parts, contrary to popular belief.

    would these be a good idea for moderate performance gains, a v8 would be best but gotta wait a few years. so would these be good?

    its a daily driver now and can't be down long, funds, and I've gotta wait until I get on my own and then me and my dad will start planning a real v8 project for it, i'm talking full blueprinted 400+hp LS v8, different transmission, rear end, suspension, etc. So while I wait I might as well have a lil fun with the v6
