Clifford set up or Offenhauser

I am at the point of purchase for my 223 in my F-100.

Do I go with the Clifford intake/Weber Card/ Exhaust or keep it stock and go with a dual or triple carb Offenhauser?

I have a stock exhaust pulled into a big Magnaflow muffler and then it splits into to two out the back today. (Sounds cool)

Looking for a little mileage and power improvement before I move to the tranny or rear end.

Strong 223.

I think either would perform quite well. I think I would go with whatever you like the look of best. Weber carbs are In my mind pretty user friendly. But I have not seen the set up for a 223. Keep in mind the more carbs you add require at bit more in tuning skills to operate properly. What ever you do we sure could use some pics.

I was told that few people end up keeping all three of their triple carbs hooked up. They're just too tough to keep in tune. Offy is a great name to have on your engine, but I plan to go with Clifford (someday) for my 223. Maybe get an Offy valve cover.

I have no idea what I'm doing. May as well get started.

Nah... you don't need an Offy valve cover (finding one with 8 bolts on a '60 is hard).

Just do this:
