    You probably have room for a turbo, mounted above the water manifold. exh. manifold's flipped over to feed turbo.better yet use a 259 or a 289, simpler fuel system to work with. if you want to keep the 232 normal hop up practices and a reground cam will probably do the trick. lots of good ideas, so off you go!!!

    Btw, as the only one to have driven all three of the 200+ mph Stude-powered Avantis, that kind of power is NOT available with "bolt-on" antique speed parts, I can well assure ya!
    HEY ! ! ! Quit braggin on having driven all those fast Avantis. Some of us have tender egos. I'm jealous.

    The speed parts are out there, but for a Studebaker you won't find many parts at Summit or Jegs. A Studebaker V-8 can be very peppy with the right combination.

    For the 232 there were Offy 4 bbl manifolds available. Some say they were not that good , but they were good on the 232, it also shaves several POUNDS. If that was mine and it had to stay a 232, I'd use 259 heads and shave them looking for 9 to 1 ratio and add the 259 exhaust manifolds and duel exhaust for sure with an R1 cam. It was done quite a bit back in the day, and better cams/ tech. is out there today. Get a newer distributor and tweak the timing until it is perfectly tuned.

    The only 2 carb manifold I've seen for sale lately is one for a boat. The angle of the carb base is too far off for automobile use. Most of the speed stuff is cams, 4 bbl intakes and higher compression.
    The higher compression can be obtained in several ways, but I would not recommend that any more. The gas sucks and won't really support the very high compression too well.
    Cams can be bought through some of the vendors. Usually the basic Avanti cam is a good choice. Not radical, but enough to wake up a Stude V8.
    Intakes can be found for a single 4 bbl fairly easily.
    All depends on what you want to do with it.
    There are some die-hards still racing Studebakers and taking them above 200 mph. So it can be done if you have the budget.
    Now then, if you just want to go fast, you could do a turbo or two. Those are not too tough to fabricate and you can get some very streetable horsepower.
