What are the engine spec (year, vehicle it came from, etc..), intake your using, etc...

I plan on doing a 302 swap this spring.

Looks good, tired of the lack of power my 2.8 has, good engine, not enough ass to it though.

Looks good so far. If you made your motor mounts solid, you need to make your trans mount solid too, otherwise you will crack the bellhousing all the way around. Keep up with the pics!!

thanks ! the motor is an early 90s roller motor it is bored .30 over 306 cu. flat top pistons 10.5:1 compression e303cam, performance products aluminum high rise intake moroso 1"carb spacer march racing alternator bracket and high flow standard rotation water pump and timing cover 395hp at 5900 and 417ftlb at 2900


how did you get those numbers?? remote turbo with this version?

those looked like reg iron heads to me....if they are some bad ass afr's or something then correct me...sometimes pics are decieving.

with 10.5 to one i can see 3-330 crank hp for sure with an e cam.

350 plus with an e on a naturally aspirated is tough task....:icon_confused:





300 plus with this setup needs some help...hard to squeeze 350 hp through that exaust with out a turbo.

at least with what i have built.
