Question wanting to build a older style 302

I was wondering how to go about building a 302 to produce around 300 horsepower starting with a older 302 block with a 347 stroker kit. What would be best on cost as far as aluminum heads and intake and carb?

even so I`m not much help on Ford topics, and I`m sure some others on the board can answer your questions, I say why not build a 351W? costs about the same, more cubic inches, and makes good power and will make your 300 horse goal easier to reach.

Getting 300hp from a 347 is a piece of cake.

Go for 400+ and make it more interesting!

Using Trick Flow Track Heat heads and matching cam it is easy to get over 350 hp. AFR heads would get there too.

I have a 61 Ranchero. It has the same limited space. I used head 1 5/8" Maverick headers. It took a little work but I got them to fit. I also used the Maverick radiator. The Falcon ones are just not enough.
