That would depend on the "302", now wouldn't it? There are factory 302 Fords that will smoke a factory 300 straight 6 so badly that you'd think the inline was racing in reverse.

I tend to agree, I think if you look at a same year comparison the 302 will actually almost always make more power. There's a reason the 6 was a base engine and the v8 was an option. It's a good mill don't get me wrong but let's not start start the myth factory here...

Is that English, and if so what is your point?

the 300 in line 6s has less strian on the motor cause the pistons aind going at a angle so there for it has more power cuase of less strain on the motor now if you have a low geared tranny hocked to the in line 6 the 302 will out run it but if you up grade the tranny no it will not

That's not even remotely true. Please no more misinformation.

The GA Dept. of Ed./NCLB is alive and well!

Even ignoring your faulty assumptions, what you are saying cannot be taken seriously- there are too many variables when you just say "300 inline 6" and "302 Ford".

And you cannot judge all 302's and all 300 I6's by what Momma's 302 does compared to your 300. Besides, she told me that she was sandbagging just to let you win for a change.

It will always be comparing apples to oranges. Seat of the pants dyno will tell that in identical trucks, the 300 will out pull the 302 at lower rpms and lug a lot better. I've had both and have no issues with either but I think my 300 will pull the trailer better than 302s I have had. If I had a Mustang I would surely want a 302, not a 300.
The head on the 300 is pretty restrictive and even hogged out as much as you dare port isn't capable of supporting much over 300 hp. There were some furnace brazed 351C heads made for them that would allow for a pretty radical engine build, rare and expensive.
