So here's the deal. After searching long and hard about what kinda car I want, I decided another fox. For the simple reasons cheap, lots of parts and lots of expertise. Now I've decided the platform what engine? Well I looked at 302 and 351 motors and Iv'e decided a 302 based engine can go along way in such a light car. So Im leaning towards a 331 or 347, My question is has anyone ever built a kick ass motor along these lines in the 450+ or close range. And which is the way to go EFI or Carb'd. Any help and build spec's is greatly appreciated.

I think the 302 will spool up faster. 450 rwhp is not an issue with a small turbo as far as i know.

Which block you start out with will have a lot to do with the longevity of the engine...Either Boss 302 or Boss 351 would be the ticket.

you have alot and i mean ALOT of parts you can throw at a 302 so not a bad platform to start with and upgrade a few years down the road man so...... either way the fox is going to be a cool little project..... you can go so many ways with it.

personally i would kill to build about an 83-85 4 eye gt and find an 03-04 cobra thats been wrecked to swap everything into it.
