I knocked a consistent .003 seconds off my time when I was running my Vega wagon (sbc 383) by making a cool can for the fuel. All you need is an old coffee can, some copper tubing, a some brass compression fittings, a couple of grommets, a piece of metal flashing (mounting bracket) and a drain plug fitting. It's an inexpensive 'trick' that isn't difficult to make and will squeeze just a bit more out of that 427.
