..Just had to toss my 2 cents in on the 302 chevy engine. In 1963, I built a small block chevy using a 327 block and a 283 crank. Using the light flywheel clutch and pressure plate, only a 5.25/4.80 roller cam, a 2.20 Borg Warner 4 speed and 5.38 rear end gears. I was able to take my '56 vette to 9500 RPMs, and run the 1/4 in the 12's. After 47 years I still have the car--now with a 350 and the old style Rochester FI. The car now has 297,000 miles. My friend and partner was the first to break 300 MPH in the 1/4.
