I scrapped the idea for a stock internaled 302 and am just going for a 347 since its going to be about 2,500-3,000$ more...money well spent in my opinion. I can rev it higher and I will get more power with the right combo...I have an idea of what makes power on these 302 base motors, but what heads would work well? I was thinking trick flow renegade 225cc, or trick flow hi-port 225cc or even a good set of ported canfields. Custom solid roller will be from FTI. I heard he does great work and that solid rollers are better for high rpms? Looking to spin about 7500rpms. So what heads? Also, I heard shaft mount rockers are a must for spinning that high? This will be a daily street car...so keep that in mind. I'm not sure on the fine details so help me out. I know ill use a gforce dog-cut T5 and I will still retain EFI. Ultimate goal is to run a lowwww 10. Maybe a 10.2-10.4? Is that possible? I've seen 347s with Victor Jr. Comp cams solid roller and a super Vic run 10.9s easy...so custom stuff would get me close right? Thanks.

It is possible to run that number with the heads you wont.... I like the highports..I wouldnt use a stock block..Look for a older aftermarket block like a A4 block or a R block....alot less expensive over a dart block! I think your going to end up spending more than what you think! I am almost done with my all out 347 with TEA highports and 2 speedtech foggers...so if you have any questions let me no!

Like the above poster said, 7500 RPM with those high flowing heads and a stout solid roller, won't last long in a stock block!

What's up junkie? You're over on Modded Mustangs, I'm stangbanger302...anyway, yeah. Ill probably look into a earlier model block or a Mexican block. Not too sure. Thanks!

I used to run a 302 with a Procharger that put 501 to the wheels. Stock block, rods, pistons. Used only a girdle. Lasted 5 years until I broke it all down to build a stroker windsor.
That said. 7500 is a pretty high number with a stocker. At the very least, get some good H beams a forged crank. Girdle. Lightweight rotating. I'd do a flat tappet with beehive springs for the weight and I'd run AFR 185's on it. Solid rollers require heavy lifters, heavier springs, etc.

Well I made 501 at the wheels with a simple setup. And that dog ring T5 will kill you on the street. Feels like the trans will come through the floor every shift. The 185's make plenty of power.

You should start off with an aftermarket block if you want this motor to survive.

a 347" engine being larger than your 302" engine requires more cylinder head, especially when its N/A and not supercharged
