I've heard that these 302/5L engines don't like going out that far, oil and water temp issues. Anyone else know about this?
Thanks

Unless it's a "special" block, like an A4, R302, or 351 Sportsman, .040" over is risky.

You could get an ultrasonic scan to select a block that would go that far, but with that expense you might as well buy a special block.

You could also look into using hardblock filler and partially fill the block. That should add enough reinforcement strength and still allow for proper cooling on the street.
