Re: 302 power....is it possible to have a powerhouse 302?
factory xa 302 2v headed has 230hp.factory xa 2v headed 351 has 250hp.
its up to you but i would spend money on mods to your 302 that can be used on a 351 engine later eg build up good trans,diff,exhaust,carb,ignition.
if you have for e.g 3.55 rear end then it will give your little engine more poke,and possibly keep you satisfied while you build up a 351 engine.
the ONE thing i know for sure is: no matter how big and nasty YOUR CAR is, someone always has one thats BIGGER and NASTIER. build a bridge and get over it i did.
