I would run an oval port head with matching intake and a 32/36 carb. Cut the head .160, 3/4 bowl blend and call Schneider about the cam and springs. Kieth Black pistons with stock rods and balanced crank. There are alot of 2300s at our track that turn good rpms with this stuff and they live all year if not abused. Hope this helps. By the way, if you get a weight break the 2000 might work better because of the solid lifters.

yeah man ...thanks a ton! sounds like good solid advise. we thought about the 2000
almost ruled it out ..our driver is very
heavy and is a challenge already to get down to 2300...still thinking if we do okay..build a lighter car
is the oval port better than the D-port??

No difference is what I've heard but I've never found a good d port to try. The '74 Pinto with a 2300 has a stronger head (more durable) but not sure about the flow. It is an oval port by the way. The thing is to build a good bottom end that will last that way if you try to gain more power,rpm,etc you'll have a strong foundation.
