Re: 302 cid
My first 69, which I bought in 1989 after graduation was a bad mofo. It had a 302 with 12.5:1 piston, can't remember the cam, but no one could beat me. I had 4.56 rea end and that puppy would launch. I never ran it down the drag strip, just old blacktops, so I have no idea what she ran. I have a 383 now about 450ish horse and that 302 was every bit as fast, if not a smidgin quicker.
69 x-11..LS1, 420.88 horse to the tires,750 Holley Ultra DP, Torquer V2, darksides headers, PRC heads, 10.8:1 compression, forged bottom end, 5 speed. 2008 King Ranch F150 4x4.
