Smile List of parts

Hey everyone,

I have a 85 F150 with 302 in it, and I am currently restoring the truck. I really want to improve the engine, but I do not know much about old engines, and I am new to trucks. So would anyone give me a list of parts to buy and mods to be done? I would really appreciate it!!! I have a budget of $500 - $1000.

Thanks!

How do you think of the Summit Racing SUM-CBJJ118? Or are there other suggestions for exhaust system?

Not sure that will fit your truck, looks like it is for early Bronco. Local muffler shops are hard to find I suppose, but that's where I'd go. Headers are good for power, but the SBF manifolds are not the worst in the world for a mild upgrade, especially since you are not upping compression with new pistons.

Dual 3'' tubes are WAY too huge for a 302 (even a built one).
