EFI 302

What would be better power wise and long term life wise. Rebuild my current 150K '87 302 with GT40 heads, headers, freer flow exhaust, or swap in a stock 351 either used, or one of those $2,000 new 351's. I have never driven a "built 302" so I don't know what I could expect. I have driven a 351 and it is better than the 302, but by no means a worldbeater. I would like to keep the price below $2500 if possible, but please give me your suggestions.

Re: EFI 302

If your 302 is in good shape it is very easy to get alot more power out of them and they will still be a reliable truck.
First a computer chip is needed, this will boost hp, torque and fuel economy.
Second install a K n' N air filter set-up this will again increase your hp and so on.
If this still isn't enough take off the clutch fan and install electric one.

For more hp I added headers, power pullies, and now a performance cam. Porting the heads helps a lot too! If you want get radical with the power, add a mass air flow conversion. It allows the computer to operate faster, giving faster throttle response.

Binderman did you add a mass air flow conversion?
