I found that while I did enjoy the simplicity of a carbed engine.. the trustworthyness of an injected enine is to die for.. although, an injected system can have lot sof issues if not tuned right as well :-)

What if you want with a carbed 302?

the only reason i didnt want to go to a 302 was the weight and haveing to loose all that i already put into drivelines and clutch suspension . etc. i am actually thinking about a 2.8 v6 now. just because edelrock has a intake manifod for it so it would be carburated with secondarys. i would just build the 2.9 but im haveing issues finding an intake manifold for it
