Hey fordmodders!

I'm back in the blue oval again!

302 legends please help, my previous 302 was a budget build centered around 1.6YT rockers, GT40P heads and a mild cam. I sold that complete motor *insert small back story here* and was told it went hard in an EF Fairmont.

My next project isnt budget focused and I'm aiming much higher this time.

Assuming tuning, etc. to suit,

Is, 350fwkw N/A achievable with alloy heads, intake and cam that keeps the revs below 6500 rpm?
Non-stroked
Standard Block

Heads I'm considering are
AFR185/Kaase P38 head (if still avail)
Trickflow/RPM2 Intake
And a cam that pulls from say (3000/3500 - 6200) :mrgreen:
Long Ceramic Extractors, 4>2>1 and twin 2.5 crossed then ending twin 2.25

I'm worried those heads are too big and need 7000+rpm to get there hence people going AFR165/TW and making (say...) 270fwkw
I was hoping to keep block standard but would be open to forged internals (as long as it remains 5L).
I don't want to use a Dart block. If I did, I'd make a high revver and the post is pointless haha.

Is this a "have my cake and eat it too" scenario?
What setup are people running for this power N/A within a 6000-6500 max rpm and ensuring it's not a slug below.

*driveline aside*

Just for an update,

I have been checking out the Mustang Forums for some extra information on 302 builds.
Why are they so obsessed with carburettors in the US? :?

It looks to be quite difficult making that HP at <6000rpm. Most are suggesting adding a stroker.
Same power levels but achieved lower in the rev range.

I looked at most builds and anything with high HP wants revs, making it far less streetable. Similar to the BOSS 302.

Just a quick topic bump, can anyone chime in here?
and has anyone used the Kaase P38 head combo?
