Definitely keep the good ol' 5.OH!

The 302 aftermarket is HUGE compared to 4.6 aftermarket.
302's are easier to work on... You ever tried changing spark plugs on a 4.6???

There is nothing wrong with the 4.6, but the aftermarket is where the 302 surpasses the 4.6 easily.

5.0 is ALOT easier, and ALOT less expensive to get power from too. The modular motors are good motors, but they thrive off boost. Its hard to get a mod motor to hit 350rwhp without boost, or nitrous. They dont respond that well to bolt ons either. I came from a 4.6 to the 5.0's and glad I did.

He took the words right out my mouth, I would say go 351, but 302 is a great motor, easy to build cheap to maintain not to mention finding parts to go fast is like so easy even a cave man can do it... :hihi: especially if your worried about cost 4.6 will cost you, save your self the money by switching to 5.0, almost sounded like a commercial :headscratch:
