Of course you should,why not.This is just my opinion and if the car was mine, I would do a ground up restoration and being an Oem fanatic I would it keep totally Original apart from a set of 15" bbs anyway good luck.

Re: Flat spot on accel.

when i overhauled my B20 i carefully examined most of the air horses (off the car) and found a number of them had small splits - most look fine when on the car.

age and heat makes the hoses brittle and ultimately crack.

I would remove the hoses one by one and examine them for peace of mind.

by the sounds of it you have a low mile chromie (i have one of the same year). Theses are only going one way price wise and an original car with stock engine will always be worth more.
