Research and nab parts as they come up for sale. It is a pretty significant project to undertake.After weighing the cost of this swap versus new heads and gaskets for my 4.0 and also time constraints. Got a 3 month old and my fiance works evenings pretty much leaves when I get home. so no time to put into a swap. I have decided to just buy new heads for now and down the road when I am more financially able to and have alot more money I will swap.
Thanks everyone for your help. But until then I will be doing alot more research
I'm plenty familiar with the SBF power lol, I had a 342 NA in my 88 Mustang, 430hp on the rollersTraction bars at a minimum. Four link with tuneable coilovers would be ideal for drag racing in my opinion. To be truthful ,you're gonna have quite a bit of coin in a 302 to get to the 300hp mark at the wheels. My 87 302 swap truck (standard cab shortbed 5spd) is laying two stripes on the road on demand. It'll break em loose at 55mph with the smallest amount of sand or gravel on a paved road when you're on the throttle.. Left in 5th gear. The truck has 4.10 rear gears though, for now. With 10.5" rear Nitto 555's. I imagine they'd hook decently on a sticky track though.
