in the workshop manuel 302w's had 220bhp:
Mustang 302 cubic inches (5L) V8
Bore and stroke: 4 x 3 inches
Power: 220bhp (164kW) at 4600rpm
Torque: 300lb-ft (407Nm) at 2600rpm
Pushrod overhead valve, 2 valves per cylinder
Fuel system: Two barrel carburettor
Compression ratio: 9.5:1
30-40hp wouldnt be that hard to gain would it??
i do plan to get extractor and exhaust ,but when the cash comes in.
im pulling the motor out so i thought it would be a good opportunity to do a cam change and maybe some small headwork.
thanks for your replies i appreiciate it
i dont intend to change to ulp
what would the benefits of a change
would i just need to mod the heads??
