The engine bay of our '64 was nothing to write home about. The 350 locked inside was virtually stock aside from the Doug's headers (D308) and new spark plugs. The small-block was sporting an outdated Carter carburetor, stamped valve covers, a Delco-Remy HEI with shoddy wiring, and factory rockers. The owner was pleased with his purchase, but the sloppy engine characteristics were progressively getting worse and would often shut down for no obvious reason. In stock trim, we ran the Chevelle on Lou's Performance chassis dyno to set a baseline. Without changing anything the small-block only produced 194 hp and 264 lb-ft.
