The 351 Clevo is a strong motor. You said it is running a 600vac/sec holley, is it running a spacer plate between the 600 and the manifold? If so if the manifold is a spreadbore and the 600 is a squarebore and you are using the spquarebore to spreadbore adapter plate you will not be getting the best flow out of the 600. Also if you have the dough i would be putting a 780 annular discharge four corner idle holley on and you will notice a fair difference in power.

I am thinking I will be going a crate 460 big block from America or EB-AU XR8 5L. So the 351 will hopefully be gone in the next 6 months. A few body mods are in order too with any luck. If anyone can help in finding any of the above engines, please don't hesitate to leave a message as any help will be appreciated. icon4.gif

They are a sweet ride, i used to own a 302 Clevo ZK Fairlane, it was pretty stock except a lumpy cam 2 1/2 dominator high stal, pacemaker extractors 4 into 1 and i was running a 600 vac secondary as well and it was making around 260 to 280 horsepower. Yours would be making around the same as yours is a 351, unless the motor has shit itself.
