Question for you guys..... I'm building a '71 Dodge Dart for the wife and possibly a sell/trade (if she doesn't take to the car). The car was a run of the mill leaning tower of power with the grandma shifter on the tree, with a 904 auto rolling it off to church. Anyways, long gone is the /6 and a 340 is taking its place, along with a 4 speed and a hurst shifter. Main goal HP wise is 400-450HP Being the car is sorta like an open canvas, I've been pondering several different ideas with the motor. One would be building the 340 into a zero deck, quench motor. Some decent ported closed chamber aluminum heads and probably a hydraulic roller. I do have a set of fully assembled X-Heads, but those seem to be more appropriate for someone going for the factory parts/performance vs. my power goals. So on to the fuel system, and I can't seem to make up my mind. I've looked into the different fuel injection systems....F.A.S.T, Eddy, Holley, Atomic and spoke with some folks that have run them. All seem to be pretty happy, and a fuel injected 340 with a 4 speed sounds pretty neat. Down side is i'm probably looking just a bit north of 2.5K when all said and done. Next would be the standard 4BBL. I'd lean towards the Quickfuel 780 Superstreet, with electric choke and vacuum secondaries. I'd have good street manner's, low maintenance and a carb that allows for some decent user tuning. The carb would probably be on top an Eddy Air Gap intake. Cost all said and done....Probably around $800-900, maybe $100 more for port matching. Last and latest thing i've been tossing around is putting a six pack on it. Again, i'd probably be looking at just north of 2K, but hey...it's a six pack! A couple things that worry me is my ignorance with them & unaware how to tune, and can I tune it to 400-450HP? I'm guessing so. Another issue, parts..where to find them? So, not to cut the car down, but it's never going to grab the popularity and resale of some of our more premier B-Bodies. It's the honest truth. Like mentioned, it's just a run of the mill Dart. I have to be honest with myself and come to the idea that the wife may not take to the car and selling/trading it may be a scenario down the road. So let me ask this, do you think adding a six pack would really propel the value of the car that much more than just a 4BBL? Or a Fuel Injected system for that matter? To put it blunt, if I stick 2K into a six pack or fuel injection, would that 2K stick to the selling price and I wouldn't go backwards? I Know, I know..a buyer will pay whatever he/she thinks it's worth, but i'm sure some of you probably have seen how adding EFI or a Six Pack plays out sales wise. There's gotta be somewhat of a trend. I don't want to short change the wife's car...It's gonna Rock N' Roll either way, but this car falls more into a closely watched budget scenario vs. when I destroyed the bank account with the Roadrunner and Coronet ragtop before that. Also like mentioned, the money put into it can more easily be lost at resale vs. a roadrunner, superbee, charger ect..ect.. So just looking for some opinions here. If you had a Dart, had a goal of 400-450HP, a followed budget, a bit ignorant on EFI and six pack's, and limited on resale (if it came down to it).....Which route would you go?
