The chevy 302 has the same bore and stroke as a ford 302, the 302 chevy was produced for a short amount of time and It was ended in I think late 67. I am pretty sure they sold the patent on the engine to ford. So the 302 is a 5.0 as is the 305 and 307. They use the formula ( 1/2 bore DIA squared X 3.14159 X stroke X number of cylinders. They just round the answer to the nearest whole number. For example a 350 is actually 349.847 cubic inches, so it is rounded up to 350. Hope this helps
