High flow water pump (Summit)
Aluminum radiator (Summit)
Water wetter or somesuch (Autozone, Summit, etc.)
Possibly a lower temp thermostat, but I'd do the others first. Also, since any 360 now would be a junkyard motor, I'd replace the thermostat with an OEM temp one (probably 180-195 degree) for that year- Mark W.
