Step 1. 351 or 383/393 stroker rotating assembly.
Step 2. CHI 190cc 2V alloy heads & Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap

More cubes for sure. The 393 stroker will suck up your 5 big ones and leave you with a half finshed project albeit a good one!! More horsepower means an exponential amout of $$$ so its doesn't explode!

351 crank with your 302 rods is a cheap option - drops straight in. Good exhaust, carb & manifold. Then the heart of it all, heads/cam.

CHI heads fully setup with valves are real cheap these days.

Chad, i recon a nice set of heads as listed above, and a cam to suit how mild or wild you want to go. I think you could make some good power with the dollars you want to spend.
