Almost ready!!!!
Well, the 302 is almost ready...just waiting on headers for break-in.

Hats off to Mission Machine Shop in San Antonio, Tx. They did the rebuild, awesome..awesome job, great service!

The small 302 beast will be sporting the following:
Thumpr Cam
Hyperutectic pistons
edelbrock intake
650 holley double pumper
Pertronix electronics

The FMX was rebuilt as well and will be sporting the following:
B & M shift kit
2500 stall converter

At the rear is stock diff - 3.00 gears - this may have to be changed...don't know yet.

all in all...the 302 should put out 275 to 300HP and the fmx should move the mustang sprint pretty good.

We shall see.

nice...that will be one peppy 302!!
Nice motor!! If you are going to run headers during breakin i would use those old ones in the pic. A new motor will run pretty hot and can burn off the ceramic coating of new headers during break in. If it dont burn off it can stain or discolor them pretty bad. Had this happen on my cleveland. i use my stock manifolds for breakin of my motors now then bolt on my headers after brwak in is complete. But anyhow great lookinng motor. It should definately run well for you.

+1 on Turtle5353's post. You will need a numerically higher gear in the differential, it will make everything work well together=Smile Chuck
Engine looks perfect.
I had a very similar drivetrain combo in a ratty '68 Torino hardtop that I had before the Sportsroof. I even ran just the stock 2V carb and was very pleased. Acceptable gas mileage and would smoke the peg-legged right rear!

Thanks fellow mustangers!

appreciate all the comments Smile

Note taken:
The motor is getting broken in with the old headers! Thanks for the advice.

Can't wait to get the lil 302 in the car. I'm gonna have to resist the urge to put the pedal to the metal.
