I ended up finding a used clifford intake and headers, so I tore all of the emission stuff off of it and replaced it with the clifford parts. On my truck there were about 30 wires that came out of the firewall that ran to the under dash computer. I traced all of these wires back and found out that I didnt need most of them so I cut them off and put set screw connectors on them to cap them off. In the end I put a holley 390 4 barrel on it and got the same mileage with more power.

With duraspark can use either Ford duraspark ignition module or the GM 4-prong module. I personally like the GM module as I can run TFI ignition coil or GM HEI coil (both coils pretty much same thing). I imagine you already have a TFI coil installed! With points or duraspark module you will need an older coil and ballast resistor.
