Re: Best mods 4 a 302clevo ??
clevo's are more of a torquey engine compared to the windsor bertheren.
you wont gain anything by dropping the mufflers except a defect notice for excess noise.
yes a change to (road friendly) 3.55 gears will help get your acceration up but you will lose some top speed.
heads... you wont gain anything by changing the size of the ports, as ford was pretty generous on that but smoothing the flow to the chambers will help. at lot of old schoolers put 4v valves into 2v heads. so they got 4v heads.
the other thing id do is save up and buy a bolt on a aftermarket EFI kit. the clevo has been efi'd in the past with great results but those cars were the few. ive gone between carby and efi and the great thing about efi is no loss in power anywhere like you get sometimes with some carby set ups.

LISA: isnt the max power way the wrong way?
HOMER: yes but, FASTER!
