There are many posts on here about 302s! A lot are mine! I posted cost to build and a couple of break downs!#1 Use the large journal 4 bolt 327 block with inserts for the small journal crank! or a 350 4 bolt block (small journal block is weeker) But this is an Idea of what your looking at if your interested! and a price Idea! I have a blue print to build a 302 but to hit over 400 hp in a 302 and the rpm ranges! you can do it much cheaper with a 350 and it will be more reliable! I build and run destroked 302 based engines I love em! But They are high maintenance!!
