To each his own. Stock block is good to 450 (safely) or so hp if you call that weak. I have mag after mag and website article after website article....the 331/347 is a proven power maker and the build of choice for a 302.

And I'm not knocking the 351....if I had it, I would stroke it too.....if anyone wants to donate one I'll see if I can make it happen.

Anyway as Forrest Gump would say...."that's all I have to say about that".

Weak is subjective. I'm talking about sinking the money for an expensive rotating assembly into a block that tends to crack down the middle when run hard. I have run tons of 302's in many forms. My point is, if you want the cubic inches, its cheaper in the long run and much stronger to go with a 351W swap.
