I have an 85 K30 dually cab and chassis with a service box. It is a 4x4 with a 205 and a THM400.
I got this to tow a 34ft trailer.  It has no smog stuff due to it being a K30 C&C. It has a Rochester 4 barrel on the stock 454. And, it has 17K original miles.
I need to get a little more power from this truck. I would rather not due any internal engine stuff due to the super low miles. It runs like a top, it just needs a little more gitty-up.
Oh, and it has 4.11 gears front and rear.
Would I benefit from a different carb, intake and cam swap? If so, what do you suggest?
There is no smog pump, so the stock manifolds are not restricted by the smog injectors. I would like to keep the stock iron manifolds if I can.
So, any suggestions that would boost the torque and HP a little?

Picked this up for 400$ when I was trying to decide what to do with the crate motor and trans out of my orange truck. Heck of a deal. All the suspension was done, guy had stripped it for racing, luckily not everything was missing. Hood is brand new but they guy didn't paint it. Bed is in decent shape too. We pulled the dash and tested all the circuitry. Chased every sensor for continuity to the dash. Got all new a/c components, had to drop the inner fender to get to the lower bolts/nuts on a/c box. Did all of the interior. Now she's going back together.

 We are putting new doors on a 76 gmc 1/2 ton 2wd and want to put the tripod mount style (3 leg) rear view mirrors on,any recommendations for re-inforcement of mounting locations? I searched most posts and didn't find any help. Will plates with nuts welded on be enough? The new aftermarket doors didn't come with anything top or bottom,one old door had a  bracket under the vent window but I'm guessing they were for the small dumbo mirrors,should I use those to support the width of the door under the vent window? I only have one so will need to fabricate another.
