Flywheel with ring gear

Billet connecting rod

Small block vanguard cam:

As a side note, the Vanguard 16hp shares the same parts with the 14hp as well. Really it's just the carburetor that makes the difference between the two.

With just these mods, you are looking easily around $750. That's not including ratio roller rockers, head work, different valves, different push rods (all extra stuff that could help).

You can still have a ton of fun with a mild build, billet rods, valve springs (highly suggest getting the tool to compress them, 60lbs is not an easy task), flywheel. A bit of polishing on the exhaust port will help it breathe better.
In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.
