This is the jack I use w/the lift.Its a 1 step process,all the way up,all the way down

I LOVE my 302 as well!!





They never run hot, and my brother's turned 374HP at the crank.

With forged internals, and 4-bolt splayed mains in a high nickle (diesel-like) block, I can bolt on another 125HP via supercharger if desired.

I don't know why Ford stopped making this engine.

Just did a ~7 hour loop from my house to Front Royal to Skyline Drive to Charlottesville back to my house in Northern Virginia. Went from ~1200 miles on the odometer to ~1500. Had an absolute blast; passing slow moving vehicles was as easy as waving as I went by!

Awesome! I haven't tested my SBF 347 yet but I cant wait. I grew up with the 5.0 Mustang engines from the 80 and 90s always wanted one. Atleast this started life as one. Nothing left except the block of this 1988 302 HO
