    I can tell you are prolly gonna a lot of chit for being a Ford man. I like them all Ford Chevy DDDDDDOOOO(cant say it) To be honest with you I am new to building race motors so I have not got a clue. If I were to guess i would say around 450-500hp. I know I will prolly get chit for that too. Oh by the way all I pull with is a Ford.

    I say somewhere in the 550 HP range with adequete carburation since you didnt mention the size of carb you'll be using.

    It would be a good idea to run a main stud guirdle, 302's and 351W's are notrious for splitting right down the middle of the block when you start making some serious power.


    Dam Dirka you didnt know fram filters were garbage? Must we teach you everything? J/K>LOL


    Goodluck, Cp
