Need some advice

Hey guys i want to get some more power out of my 68 RRs stock 383 but im new to this and unsure on the easiest/cheapest way to go about it?? Im planing on using it on the street more than the track but i still want to be quick. If you guys could recommend some parts it would be appreciated manifold intakes/carbs or anything you think will fix my problem an work well with the 383??
cheers for your time.

Without knowing the details on your RR,I would say get a hotter cam and go for a set of headers to start. Let us know about what's on there now, 2 or 4 barrel carb,auto tranny or 4speed,rear end gear ratio(should be on a tag on a center section bolt).

Add a Dual plane aluminum intake and a 750-780cfm carb. Plus a red box ingnition. I don't know what gears you have but going deeper always helps providing you don't do alot of freeway driving.

Its not enough to make me clear because there are lot of differences in engine performance as well as gear adjustment.
