The 4v stock heads when done correctly make a huge difference. The 650 is a good carb to run can't remember jet size that works best.

I'd probably just go eddy rpm air gap, and something out of the Holley 4150 line up in the 650cfm range. Headers should be no problem, but be careful of whether they're 2 or 4v headers, if the 4v you'll need an adapter.

This probably the route I'd go:
I've run this carb on several different engines and really like it:

Crazy idea and I'm going out on a limb but why don't you leave well enough alone and save your money. Like two posts in money is an issue. Take some money and save it until you have enough that you will feel comfortable spending it so you don't wind up in a bind.
