    Have a chance to pick out a few things for christmas for my mach 1 351c 2bbl, what would you guys get for power? IM thinking a new cam, headers and maybe some gears???
    I allready have the edelbrock performer intake, 4bbl carb for it.

    Thanks

    headers and cam sound good.
    just when you get headers you need to either get a new exhuast system or mod your old one. And when you get your came you need to get all new lifters too..
    The gears would be great, they can make a car or brake a car.

    Don't forget a timing chain and gears too.

    Thanks guys, so headers, gears, timing set and cam. I allready have the lifters. That should get me some OK power on my weak 72' 351c 2v I hope.

    Thanks

    My idea is hardly "original" but it often overlooked and often not understood.
