Buddy has an 82' 250 with 351w.

Well theres no denying this thing is a boat. It's big, loud, slow, and not powerful.

What are some simple, cheap, or DIY things we can do to it to add a little bit more power to it? I'm not too familiar with older engines and carburetors and all that.

Thanks.

If you don't drink Dos XX's, you need to start today.

It's a 351W. I say more fuel and more air and headers.
