#11 of 15 crate motor vs rebuild
Jun 04, 2008 (1:26 pm)
with all the horse power thats available in crate motors these days would it be a good investment. or would it be better to rebuild and add more horse power little by little. i want to stick with the 302. i read in a magazine that they have smallblock fords with between 3 and 5 hundred horsepower. what are the vantages or disadvantages and if its the crate motor witch company do you recomend

Since you're in the Diesels forum, you're not going to get much help here... head over to the Speed Shop: Tuning & Modification Board and you'll find plenty of assistance for your 302!

i have a chance to buy a set of used hooker headers for 75$ for my 1968 ford mustang with a 302, but im running a stock cam. will the headers make a difference in horse power or should i stay with the stock manifold? bare in mind im just a cruiser not a racer but i do like cheap horsepower.

... All in-line four cylinder engines that I know of are not in that category. Internal or external refers to weight on the counter-weights of the crank. Some engines, for various reasons can't quite get enough weight on the crank ends, so are externally balanced with offset weight in either or both the flywheel and or the front dampener. This is usually obvious with a quick look at a usually large cast lump/boss in the flywheel or dampener. This has nothing to do with separate balance shafts, that many fours and sixes have.
