Also, those were not the correct rocker arms as I had mentioned in another post. And, why would you swap rockers and stay with a 1.6 ratio? You don't really effect anything other than lift (only a very very slight duration change) when you bump to a 1.7 rocker. If you are going to spend the money, might as well go that route. Also, im not 100% sure about the valve covers, when I pulled my Cobra 1.7s back off, I set a stock explorer cover back on (before removing the rollers of course), and they were not hitting. But then again, the engine wasn't running either.

I've been fooling with Small block Fords for a long time. Haha, you'd die to take a ride in my Mustang.

Baaaaah you. You are absolutely right. I knew i had them backwards as i was looking at this http://www.fordracingparts.com/download/charts/85.pdf because i knew i always confuzzzzzle the two. Even though i had that in front of me to give the dude the right info, i fuggged it up. Thanks for the correction, wouldn't want the dude to get the wrong info. Also, roller rockers are installed to decrease friction and valve train deflection, not only to increase lift.

Nice teaser, looks like a tough engine, however i think that YOU would die for a ride in mine.

Hey bud, don't mean to be a "richard", but the 302 and the 351 are both Windsor motors.

I would also say between 225-240 at the wheels. You are forgetting that this is not exactly the "Mustang" 302. That engine has the gt40 heads, basically what is a gt40 intake manifold and a bigger throttle body than the stock 5.0 mustangs. Same exact setup with a little computer tunning for 93 octane, short belt and headers laid down 270rwhp in a 89 fox.

taking the transmission down to the shop in a few hours. gonna do a test fitment real quick so im absolutely positive it works.

im sorry guys but you are building this stock motor up alot more than it really is. some power will be lost when being distributed through the powertrain. ill be lucky to see 210 hp at the wheels with my setup. it would be nice and a surprise if i were to get 240 to the wheels but its highly unlikely.

its nothing you cant save up and do later on down the road though. the big part is done. the fact that you have it in there and set up is the huge part. you can always do aftermarket stuff later on and then you wont have to worry about fitment again.


good work buddy

Well This motor wont see any high performance parts other than a few bolt ons. Im not worried about making this truck FAST, Im more concerned about acceleration and keeping up with the flow of traffic going up hills lol....

Anyway, GOOD NEWS. Transmission is at the shop getting the new output shaft on. I should be getting it back in the next few days :) Cant wait.

HEre's my test fitment... like a GLOVE :)

Notice how big that tailshaft is on the transmission??? Its the 2wd 4R70W and the shaft is massive compared to the new output shaft AA gives you lol

Funny story. Some gay *** V6 Dakota was trying to race me last night. I didn't race back because I knew I could have blown his doors off but if I had a V8 I would have blasted by him. That is the only time a V8 Ranger would come in handy. Lol
