I'm not sure what you mean by a high horsepower engine, but if your looking for a stock 302 with a decent power output maybe check out a 302 High Output from a mustang, they put down about 225 HP stock. If you want alot of power its going to take money.

302's, 300HP or 380HP, and you better be prepared to drop a few stacks, cause they're true crates.
