My 83 had a mildly built 350ci engine swapped in for the stock 305. Not an entire swap, but it was stealthy and faster than newer models, including my 92.

350 shortblock is like 200. You could swap your tpi system and top end on to one of those.

You wouldn't be ripping it apart...You'd be removing the intake. No big thing.
