    I thought I'd leave some more food for thought on your engine quest. I know you said your block bore was measured at .060 over which is at limit on the SBF but if you can find another block, the 302 can make a stout HP engine and retain it's longevity which many stroked blocks do not. The second 302 engine I built at .040 over and machined line honed and decked just below 8.206 . Reconditioned the standard rods and balanced M2 rotating assembly, The cast 58 cc heads were reworked to except 2.02 valves and with a .521 lift cam made a ton of torque and HP on pump gas with a 700 cfm carb and dual plane intake. Fords like to breathe so opening up the top end in my estimation is key. The AFR 185CC head is an excellent choice . The attached article shows just what the SBF can achieve- 400 hp 302 Small-Block - Mustang & Fords Magazine

    Thanks Jim. It's not quite done yet, still waiting on some pinstripes and artwork under the hood, but coming along slowly.

    Thank you Jimmy, I just put the transmission in the trunk of the car just in time before it started pouring down rain, it's too bad I have to take it 300 miles to get it looked at but if they do fix it it will be well worth it. One good thing is it's not the only reason for traveling that distance...
