But the car weighs basically 4k so If I have wind the 302 harder and higher then a 351 to push the same amount of mass wouldnt I save money.
in the 5.0L world, people that run 3.55:1 gears with a 5.0 tend to also run the same gears with a 351w based motor. Street driven of course. If you're going to rebuild your motor, then you should at least consider a 351w. They really aren't much more to build.
