I wasn't doing it in the 60's. Because thats when I was born but I was raised up loving and working on the 60's muscle cars and building my for 327 when I was 15, dang those were the days.....!
But yes. You're pretty much right, I get a good flow on the exhaust, tune the carb well and those two things alone make a world of difference in how these little engines run.
