It's not just hp & torque...vehicle weight and the type of usage (or perhaps "abusage"?! :D ) is equally important when trying to prognosticate on potential trans reliability and longevity.

Re: Sodium Filled Exhaust Valves...

If you're going to change the valves, while your at it, you may as well upgrade from the stock 331-354 1.94 intake valve to the slighter bigger 2.00 inch-diameter 392 intake valve. They're only .060 bigger but that's enough to make a noticeable difference in power. Plus,the cost for aftermarket 392-...

Just a thought....I noticed your carbs have the forward-facing fuel inlets. Some model 2GC Rochester have their fuel inlets on the side of the float bowl rather than at the front. Running two of them, it might be easier to plumb the fuel lines - and be better looking as well - with the side inlets. ...
