The computer can be flashed with a plug-in OBD II unit or you can send it off for custom tuning. Doug Thorley headers are great, but there are others. Price is a consideration.

Usually the front driveshaft can interfere.

Drop a 360 in it. The 318 is a good revving short stroke engine and pretty much indestructible, but it was never a great heavy car or truck engine. 360 has a bigger bore and stroke all around. Even the crank mains are bigger because it was designed from the beginning to push heavy vehicles (old C bodies and trucks).
