    I have a 1973 k5 blazer and I just sold my ford f100 for 2000 and am putting the money in my blaze. I am haveing my 350 sbc rebuild at a shop in duran, ok and am wondering if my motor has a .460 lift cam and dove pistons and .20 over crank what kind of intake would yall prefer I have a torker intaks and I was wondering what size carb would yall use and I need a tailgate and glass I live in denison, tx we took the 4 bolt main and a crank to the shop and they were gonna use them and it has double hump heads but they were gonna use them but It had a crack in the block and the crank was trash but I had a block and a crank I took to him

    for the best drivability, a standard torquer type intake works...IIRC, I ran a Edelbrock Performer and it worked well. For carbs, its EASY to over-carb...pick up a stock quadrajet and rebuild it...they are good for mileage and great offroad carbs as well.
