I just picked up a 91 coupe roller
I have my choice of a 91 302 or a 94 351 out of a truck.
The way I see it is i have to start from scratch any way so why not 351.
then there is the guy on the other shoulder, I have never built a non roller motor so the cams and things i know will not work in the 351 non roller.
Can you guys help me figure out the route to take.
how well will a stock 351 run with just a cam swap a victor jr intake and a 750dp with a t-5 behind it?
thanks
also what heads were put on truck 351s in 94?
Also when i say starting from scratch i mean all i have is the car
no brackets accesorys nuttin

If I got to pick my engine I'd take the 351, like you said you're starting from scratch either way so why not pick up almost an extra liter. As far as not knowing about non-rollers, there's no better time to learn. Do you plan on buying the Victor Jr for whatever engine you get or do you have it already, because the 351s take a wider lower intake than the 302s.

That '94 351 should be a roller motor. You will need the dogbones, retainer, and roller lifters from a 5.0, but it should definately be a roller block, as I believe '94 was the first year that Windsors were cast as rollers.

how about the truck 302's? sorry to go off topic

but i would go with the 351 block and go up to a 393 stroker if you are wanting to make some serious power that involves boring .060" then clearencing the new crank, a decent 393 should run abotu 4-7000 CAD using mostly edelbrock parts, victor and vic jr quality parts, it's about 5000top of the line will run u about 6-9000 closer to 6 though, try desktop dyno 2000, have some fun i can attach some files on here for heads and cams if you like

so it would be machined for a roller cam but not have roller lifters?
if that is so could i run a 302 roller cam in it?
how can i tell if it is a roller block?
thanks.
as far as the victor jr intake question.
I do not have it yet but i heard it was one of the best.
Im gonna build it with stock heads untill i can get some afrs or better.
Thanks guys
