The smog pump is for pumping additional air into the exhaust to help with emissions. The only thing you will save is the parasidic lose the pump creates, maybe 3-5 hp. To make power in the LA motor you will need to do some head work and a cam. Its all about inhailing and exhailing. I would caution you don't over carberate. LA motors don't need more than 650 cfm in most cases.
