My best suggestion? Get a 351 windsor. It will be much easier to get 400 horses out of a 351 than a little 302. If street action is the plan, get rid of the Victor intake and get a dual plane intake with a more realistic RPM band.
If track action is the plan and you want to rev it, I hope your wealthy.
On the street with a 302 and a Victor intake plus a sizeable cam, you`ll need 4.56 gears to make it tame enough for street duty and you won`t like it.
