    Lets make my van fast.

    ok you guys i drive a 1988 chevy astro van with a 4.3l vortec engine. i know the best thing i could do is change the mortor mounts and drop a 350 in but i dont want to deal with that. i would like to keep the 4.3l and add parts to it.
    does any one know what intake manifolds and carbs i could add to give me some extra torque and HP? i know for a fact lots of companys make parts for the 4.3l vortec but my main consern is clearance with my engive cover(remember it is a van).
    If you guys got any info or suggestions that would be awsome. let me know whats up fellas.

    Re: Lets make my van fast.

    20" with a 2" tire fit the astro with no mods needed. so 22" with a little modification is totaly possible. might need to increase wheel well size a bit but that just cutting and welding.

    theres a newer one droped on 20" same wheel demsions as mine.

    theres a nother one on dubs( i really like this one)

    anyhow back on track. i need performance parts.

    Well, put a cold air intake on it, exhaust, pulleys, powerchip, shiftkit. That should get you closer.

    Later

    Well, put a cold air intake on it, exhaust, pulleys, powerchip, shiftkit, headers (if they make them for a van), more aggressive camshaft. That should get you closer.
