cold air intake, exhaust. cleaning up some engine parts will help restore some lost power. theres a thread for a throttle body mod you can do which involves cutting off the fins on the bottom side of it. i did it to mine and it help with my throttle response. and the cleaning up of the throttle body also made a diffrence, helped with a smoother idle. theres alot you can do without spending a whole lot of money

Was 94 when dodge went to the "magnum" 318 with the stud mounted rockers instead of shaft mounted rockers?

I guess I should explain why I ask. I know mopar performance released a ported head for the non magnum engines that added quite a bit of performance but they were relatively inexpensive heads. I would think a cam, maybe a little higher compression, the heads, and a decent exhaust with headers would give you a nice increase.
