well , as ford guy and a fan of the 302 i'll have to say that you need to start with the bolt on's. start with headers and exhaust, then get that ole carb and intake off there . unless you plan on changing out the heads get a holley 2- barrel carb and edelbroke intake. that will give the ole truck a little more pep in her step. but if your looking for more than a little pep, you gotta get those 2-barrel heads off there and not spend wasted money on the 2 barrel carb and intake. If the motor is in good shape and you want a noticable power diff. I suggest you change the heads , cam ( complete matching valve train ) intake and carb ( 4- barrel ) , headers and exhaust. And as for the posi lock , i assume you still have the stock rear end and a used posi will be hard to find. Better off in the long run to buy one new and be done with it. while your in that rear end you'll be money ahead to rebuild it while you have it apart.
