Re: how to get 220 rwkw???

What do you mean only a 302 on your P's?

Put at least a 351 crank in it and go from there.

Nitrous or boost are probably the easiest & cheapest options.

Re: how to get 220 rwkw???

How do you arive at the magical number of 286 rear wheel horsepower (220rwkw)?

That's about 360hp or 275kw at the flywheel, or 1.2hp per cubic inch.

Have a lazy $10k to spend?

As mentioned above, rebuild the engine as a 351, keeping the 302 block to maintain matching numbers. You'd be back near 1hp per cubic inch; a much more achievable figure within a budget.

Re: how to get 220 rwkw???

Have'nt you ever seen the Movie 'Mad Max' , Where the Mechanic say's "Speed's just a question of Money , How fast do you want to go ???". But seriously , if you want to spend some Money , a good start is Solid Lifters , Extractors and good Mufflers etc..., 351 crank and rods inside your 302 block . As the block and pistons are the same , Your Block No. will still read as 302 to RTA and Cops etc... . However , use Open Chamber 351 Heads and fit single Groove 4V Valves, 302 Heads [High Comp] will make your engine ping on regular pump petrol . Also , with significant power increases you must strengthen your Engines 'bottom end' , and Modify Driveline to suit to take maximum advantage of Modifications. Try to balance it all out to your driving capabilities , Budget, and practical requirements of the intended vehicle.

220 rwkw?

Ask TTNOS8 how much work he's done to a 351 to get close to that, then add $4000+ to get a 302 to the same level.

There is probably 10 cops/epa agents in VIC that know how to measure the stroke of a 301/351. I would, and did, take the risk.


Go the 351, aim for 180rwkw and a driveline tocope with the power and work up from there.
