BTW it is an auto...i would have thought it might spin up some smoke but i cant get it to light up from standing start. Pirelli Zero's all round.

The Windsor doesn't produce much torque for a 5L, but more to the point, gearing and traction play a big part, those autos are pretty miserable devices too.

So the 302 is doomed to be a lamer. Without spending huge bucks on a rebuild. I was gonna put Pacemakers on it but now i dont think it would be much better for the $$$...what do you think?

Well, they do need a bit of money spent on them before they really come to life.
To make them really breath they need decent heads, although I'm not sure which heads the 200kw engines have, others here may know.

A couple of things you should maybe check first however is if the engine is in good tune. Replace plugs, leads, fuel filter and air filter. Also use premium fuel.

A good exhaust and extractors would be the next step.

I have K&N filter and have cut the cats off (legal in NZ) factory headers through to factory muffler, cut rear factory muffler off and replaced with two side by side Cobie resonators..breathes well and in performance mode winds out well...good tune...just wont light up the rear..

You must be joking....
If you cant light up the rear in a 200kw V8 monster then you dont know how to drive. I do burnouts in my EA I6 with far less power than you have at your disposal.

Typical Holden kids.
