Get a Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog. They have 351 crate engines from 240, 250, 360, 385 and a stroked 351/392 430 hp. You can build your own, but a crate engine is the way to go. Prefer aftermarket? The Mustang magazines have plenty of crate engine suppliers advertising.

351 engines , especially the Windsor, suck. Rebuild your 302.

This, of course, is complete bullshit. Ah, but let's play along for a minute. Oh, guru hoytd, tell us how the various 351engines suck. Do provide references and complete documentation, as well as expert testimony.

My comrade has been in the Ford field for 40+ years...he reccomends if you must use a 351, go with the cleaveland, not the windsor, as the windsors tend to be in the shop twice as much as the cleavelands, and the 351's are in the shop 10 times mores than 302's. Its not based on some guy in an office writing up reviews, but rather facts out on the shop floor. I myself drive Fords, but he reccomends to drive Chevys as they are in the shop 1/2 as much as Fords, and the repairs are easier to perform.

Alas, when pressed, you can not back up that rash, groundless comment at all. This is just one in a pattern of Ford bashing comments that you have posted since foisting yourself upon this forum. I believe you to be nothing but just another worthless troll. Begone, troll.

You are the one using false information on your account, and you dont have the information either.

That's quite a reference. 40+ years in the business.................with his head in the sand. Sounds like a single shop owner that has very little if any post high school education, little if any technical education. The only real training he has is what he has in his cliental, old worn out, non-maintained crap. Facts form a shop floor, yea what ever.

351 is heavier. 351 is taller. Your hood won't close unless you put a scoop in it.
351 uses more gas. 351s don't make all that much power for their size unless some mods are done.
I'd do the mods to the 302.

it is 40 lbs heaver, and you can get the hood closed if you check around and find out how.(been there done that)

the 302 to 351 is one of the most popular mods going. It is much more a torque motor and plenty more low end power for a little bit of work. And can be easily built for much more. He is full of it. Good swap Go for it. KB

I agree, it's a good swap. I've done it on several. a 1966, and a 1968. I also added a 3/4 race cam. Until I put traction bars and the widest tires I could get under the stock wheel wells, it was pretty uncontrollable. I bought a low profile air cleaner and chopped of a little of the stud on the carb to eliminate the engine from hitting the hood. I also added a chain to the motor mounts to limit the amount the engine could twist.

Really? How do you figure? Your "shop facts" tell you that?
