See if you can find a 360 short block (you can get by using your heads) or the whole thing. Straight drop in, much torquier right off the bat, just got to remember to get an externally balanced TC.

since the holes are just to regulate air flow and no additional fuel spray is done its really a useless upgrade on our trucks...your looking at it wrong, its not like going from a 2 to 4 barrel carburetor... the two larger holes will flow more air with less restriction... If you really want to be able to utilize the extra flow you need to address other things like the heads and exhaust and injectors...bosch "703 injectors are a nice upgrade to boost performance since they have a nice fine mist spray as opposed to our older style pencil type injectors that spray a jet of fuel and depend on the hot valve to vaporize it ... many claim 3-3 better mpg once this is done and the fuel sync is adjusted...

Augiedoggie is correct.. The tb on your truck right now is fine moving plently of air.. No need for bigger valves.. Just need to get that pump (your engine) working better.. Exhaust and injectors and cam is where you want to spend your money.. Don't forget new valve springs yours are worn out
