Wanted to do something special for this post so I thought I'd list 302 reasons why the 302 is the number one small block that Chevy ever produced.

1. I like them.
2. Chevy only put them in first gen Camaros.
3.

There's more, but those are the only two I need for me.

What's everyone's favorite PRODUCTION small block and why?

I would say ZL1 as well... but if you want a small block... I'd have to say that I've grown very fond of the little 327. If only I had the 375 horse version...

The 302, because it was one of the first motors that beat the HP/cu in. barrier from the factory by a wide margin. It was rated at 290hp but everyone knew it was more like 350 horse. Also there is nothing like banging shifts at over 7000 rpm.

It also has a great power to stroke ratio and it was the first small block engine I ever rebuilt.

I think the 69 302 is one of the best. But I DREAM about having one of those 427 small block, some create motors company is making, installed in my 68.
