Im building with my son a 302 for alittle light weight F150 83 mdl.
1. Canfield heads 2.02 in and 1.60 exhaust
2. Weiand street fighter dual plane intake
3. 750 quick fuel carb (reccommended by the Racing shop here locally who built my heads)
4. 1968 302 mustang block-looks good on the bore so may not have to have it bored.

That is what ive collected or accumulated so far besides arp head bolts and main bolts and rear sump oil pan and pickup tube.

Id like alittle lopey idle for a street cruiser that on occasion will light some 1/2 ton dodge hemi up at a red light... Thats all. Thanks for the help for this old man and his first solo build

The .520 lift limit is going to be the issue, plus the 302 will want rpm. Pick the camshaft you want and get the springs that match the camshaft.

If you truly want to build this block, then you need to seriously consider a stroker kit to give it some bottomend "oomph" I would also go smaller on the carb unless it's a vacuum secondary unit.

I got a Scat 331 stroker kit for it. i used that comp cam site that helps you pick the right one. 395-400 hp is plenty. So im thinking of going with Comp OTS.. no custom grind or anything like that. Just a little ole F150.. Not a racer may surprise a few folks-maybe lol
