Ride: none atm lol, 302 cleveland

Location: Adelaide
SA, Australia

Hi to everyone, I am currently building up a 302 cleveland but not sure should I leave it a 302 or should I go to a 351? the machine shop I go to reconmends a 351 crank with the 302 rods want to know what fellow ford lovers reconmend?
I want to have 300 to 350 hp out of her.
Its going to have crow cams 234 @ 0.050 hydraulic roller cam, and port and polished heads, valves etc.
Also just wanting to know what would be the best carby I have a holley 465 vaccum carby (4 barre manifold) the manifold was off a 351 2v.

Thanks any reconmendations will be a great help

In this case I would go 351..
Bigger engines can take bigger cams without being cranky..
Btw Aust is the only country to have a 302 Clevo...



As in ZOOM 126 edition
331 Dart block,3.25/ 4340 steel crank, Oliver rods,TFS ported track heat heads, TFS track heat inlet Twin SC61 turbo's
Project 1UZ-EF has started.. S475 Turbo 4.0 V8 Mustang Celica.....

Yep go the 351 with the 302 rods or go the Scat 393 kit. Weigh up the dollars and you'll find the 393 kit to be a good move.
