Do you know if anything at all has been done. If not... let it breath, give it a new bump stick and see how it goes. It will make a nice difference.

yeah but cant just put a cam on it, need it to be able to get enough air fuel in it then for it to get it out. so holly and headers exhaust then it will have a bit of go and be better if u put a stally in it to if ur going to cam it, depending on the cam around 2500 3000 rpm is good
