Slower than all those I imagine. A more modern engine might be what you want if you want to keep up with the traffic on the highway. I'd do some looking if there is room at the front of the engine you might put in a five cyulinder. If its like the 115 body style if it had a five or six the rear of the motor was always placed the same the difference being made up at the front. I think maybe the 319 came with a gas six too.
