If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?

My credo
A legend to the old man, a hero to the child...
Instead of spending a fortune to install a 3.0 and not make much more power, if you don't want a 5.0, rebuild the 2.3 and stick some deeper rear end gears in it. I like 3.0's just fine but I don't like lots of work and expense for minimal power gains. I guess it would be unique. There was a Pinto at Carlisle with a flathead in it that was cool and unique but it added a ton to the front end and may have cost him some hp. I've never been cool so being faster is more important to me.
Or sell the 3.0 and put a 2.9 in it.

Thank you all for the advice the only reason I asked was because I had the motor all ready but I'm thinking about doing 302 V8 since people have already done it and have it all documented
