AMC 304 Problems/Upgrades

Ok, so my CJ5 has the 304. Its misfiring right now, but i think a carb rebuild will fix that, but does anyone know any good (but not super expensive) upgrades for it?

I plan on swapping out the distributor on mine to a GM HEI style. prices range from $60. ebay deals to $300. DUI brand. just spotted one in the summit catalog that's a Mallory for $185. I think I'll go that direction myself.

That seems reasonable. I think Im going to take a dremel to the heads on mine to open it up. Ill probably get a new carb eventually. Ill also eventually do the master rebuild kit on it from enginekits.com

Long range plans for mine include a Howell Fuel injection. Unless the 304 act's up then it may be a 350 TBI or a 5.3L
