    IMHO (and novice opinion) that wouldn't be a big improvement over what you have. Your intake manifold is fine. You really need to get new modern heads with 64cc chambers to get your compression ratio up; modern heads will also flow much better at all RPM, come with bigger valves and better springs, etc. With good heads you might be looking at 350hp, perhaps 100 more than you have now. (OK, probably need a 650cfm carb for that too.)
