302 'bird rebuild
It's been a while since i was on here....anyways my old 84 302 spit a head gasket (into the oil pan) proceeding to trash the motor.
what kind of performance can I get from this car. I would like to use all the exisiting parts if possible. A local person told me that the t-bird heads were very limiting in airflow, is this true or not?
Are there any factory heads that flow more off of another car or truck? I know the interchange is from 78-85.
thinking of a possible overbore to a 306 ci, small cam, and headers.
I would like to see 225-250 horse from my rebuild. Yes I want to keep my TBI set up. This was grandma's car I'd like to give it a little kick for fun.
I'm looking for input from everyone who has an idea of where i'm going with this. Keeping in mind my allowance isn't alot....i've had to convince the wife to let me rebuild it. So any idea of parts to be used and possible cost is greatly appreciated.
