    Classic Tech
    I need help making a decision, so I figured you guys could help that have been here. In my car right now I have a 302 that was rebuilt around 5k miles ago. My plans were to modify that. However, I meet a guy who will sell me a roller cam 302 with 80k miles on it for $200. It's fuel injected, and...
  2. 302 Roller or 351w Roller?

    Classic Tech
    Alright guys, I'm in the place that I know many people have been in while thinking of doing an engine swap. Do I go with the late model 302 or a 351w from a 94+ truck. Either engine I will do the same aftermarket parts most likely. A mild cam, Edelbrock RPM intake, aluminum heads (probably TW...

    Classic Tech
    Hey guys, I've decided I'm going to build up a 302 block from a late model mustang. I'm most likely going to find the block on craigslist, and wanted to know how many miles on the engine should I look for. How many miles is too much? Also I just had new shorty Hedmen headers and exhaust put on...

    In my quest to figure out how to fix my newly broken AOD, I found a C4 for sale. Just so happens, it came with a 351 windsor attached. I know I want to do a carb setup but my question is, will anything I have already purchased for the 302 work with the 351? GT40p heads for example? whats a...
  6. 1971 Mustang with a 1990 302. How do I time this crazy thing?

    Classic Tech
    Okay. It's not that I'm stupid. I just have no idea whats going on. I blew the engine in my '71 Mustang. I replaced the trashed 302 from 1971 with a 302 that came out of a 1990 Ford Econoline van. I trashed the fuel injection and smog stuff and just bolted all the stuff from my old engine to my...

    Mustang II Tech
