hi guys was wondering what is classified as legal and ilegal,
i am wanting to do up a 351 cleveland prob leave it as a 5.8 and not stroke it but by putting a aftermarket cam, elderbrock intake bigger carb and extractors etc illegal? if so can u drive the car and if you dont get defected your alright even if you have an accident?
if all of the above is illegal what are good power gainers that are legal


thanks braden
