Has any one used it? I would like to go with a 351, but cant find a good deal on one. The above ford racing 306 is a nice looking motor that might look better then an old used 351. With 340 horses it should be good enough for now.
I was at one of our local car show about 3 weeks ago and there was a 67 mustang coupe with that motor and it sure looked sweet in that engine bay. The owner said he paid close to $3,500.00 for it from Ford Racing so the price at CJ Pony Parts is even better. It come with a warranty. I would strongly consider it if it was my 66 stang.
PS I'm sure that you will have to change to a oil pan and maybe the pump for one that works on the 66 stang.

Reason: oil pan
What kind of warranty on that 302? Looks like a good solid platform to build upon. Consider a good dual plane intake - air gap preferably, some headers, a good 600-650 CFM carb and an MSD or Pertronix set up and you are good to go. I paid about twice that but got a great turn-key, dyno-tuned 347 with all new parts and a completely forged bottom end from Smeding Performance. And a 3 year warranty. Puts a great big smile on my face every time I drive it.
Good luck with your project and let us know how it turns out.

Smedding makes quality engines. So does Fordstrokers. I have a Fordstroker 347 in my 1970 now - very happy with it. But plan on going with the FordRacing in my 66 vert when time comes. Good price and enough HP for the 66.
