I was gonna build one anyways to replace my 327 that's goin' into my goat.
"Vancouver Grand Prix" started this thread in 2002. My guess is that he's either got a 302 by now or he's moved on to bigger better things. This thread caught my eye because I'm in vancouver, and I drive a GP. But it aint me.

crate chevy 302

Yes, Chevrolet did build a 302 to meet SCCA cubic inch limit of 305. They were & still are a great engine. I wish someone would make a 3 inch stroke crank that didn't have the expense of a custom ground crank. I'm fortunate to actually own a 68 Z28 RS that I bought in 1981 for $1800.00

You dont need a custom ground crank, just use the GEN 2 L99 4.3L V8 crankshaft in a 350 block. Voila 302, 3" stroke, 4" bore. The L99 uses LT1 style heads, but the heads arent the same as the Lt1.

LT4 heads on a 302. That would rev.

Someone mentioned the 1970 1/2 LT-1 made 350 hp, it was actually rated at 370 gross hp. And it still wasmt the highest rated smallblock, the 1964-5 327 Vette engine actually was rated at 375 gross hp. The new LT1 of 1993 actually outpowers them all with 300 NET hp.

peace

Chevy 302 cu.in. small block

I know I'm pretty late on this discussion, but I'm relatively new to this site and just found this thread.
I would like to add my 2 cents on Chevrolet's 302 screamer.
My dad raced open wheeled dirt cars (modifieds) in the midwest back in the early-mid 90's. The power plant was a CHEVY 302 cu.in. small block.
This motor was absolutely WICKED! It had Brodix aluminum heads, 14.5:1 compression, solid roller cam, and ran on alcohol with a Scott floatless carb. No exaggeration, when that thing fired up it sounded like a top fuel dragster. He would run it around the track at 9500 RPM all night long.
In a pack of 20 other cars, you could hear his car 5 octaves above everyone elses. In fact, the announcer made the comment that he was running a 6 cylinder. I have seen first hand the power of the mighty 302 Chevy.
WICKED!WICKED!WICKED!

The original 302 Z28 engine code was MO. Check your books. DZ is 69.

I had a 67 Z28 in 68. One of 602. There were good but non as good as people WANT to believe. 67 Z's were unmarked. No emblems. I rode in mine when it still had the paper tag on it, Then bought it when my buddy went to Vietnam. He never came home....

Most everywhere in this land, Big Block Camaros and Chevelles ruled the roost. You can not take a 302 Chevrolet factory rated at 290HP and out run a 396 - 375HP Camaro or Chevelle with any kind of regularly. Like almost never. If Both cars are tuned equally and driven by comparable drivers......... by by 302. My 67 was stolen in 69 and I replaced it with a Forest Green 69 Z28 RS. After the 90 day warranty ran out, I took the 302 out and put in a L88 427 crate engine. Then I could run with the Big Guys. Takes a big block to beat a Big Block.

I do argee that MOST Z28's you see today at local shows, cruise nights and on the street are fakes. Clones is a polite way of saying FAKE.

The Z28's that show up at the National judged shows are mostly real, over restored but real.
