I meant the stock intake setup. The engine needs to come out for a rebuild. Truck still runs fine but is far from it's former glory. I haven't decided for sure if I want to rebuild or LS swap. I know how to do a rebuild and shouldn't be too big of a problem getting the truck back on the road. An LS swap is a little more intimidating and I don't know if I really have the time and patience to try to make everything work. I don't want the truck to be unusable for a year. As far as a rebuild, last time I did a compression check I think most my cylinders were around 120-130. I don't remember exactly, but I know I had one in the 90s. I think it was #7 but it's been awhile. If I rebuilt I would go with a roller cam, I imagine it will need to be bored a little, and possibly bump the compression a little bit. Other than that, I'm not sure how far I would go with the TBI and Intake. The Edelbrock is ridiculously expensive for what it offers. Whether I swap or rebuild it needs a whole new exhaust system. I don't know much of anything about tuning but the EBL looks interesting. I know most people hate the TBI heads but I don't care about anything above 4000 rpm so I don't see a reason to spend the money on new heads. At that point I think an LS swap makes more sense.
My main issue with it right now is just feeling like I have to get into the throttle constantly even just driving around town. I'm not looking for big power or to pull heavy loads. Just better drivability. Would a rebuild with a roller cam like a 252H, EBL tuning, and some bolt-ons like a volant or TB spacer/Injector spacer, TBI Mods, Salad bowl, or other small things get me to where I want to be? No idea. I just don't want to spend the money doing it just to rip it all out and end up swapping it anyway. So I'm still trying to learn what I can and make an educated guess.
