Could you be a little more specific, what exactly do you mean by safe power limit?

I guess he means so he doesnt split the block.

I guess that you would be safer to get a dart block and build the rest of the engine around that.

Or something, i dont know.

The factory engineering rating on the early 302 blocks is 550hp. Late blocks are 350hp rated.
Of course many put out a lot more than that and survive.
What do you mean by safe?
