Alrighty well I pulled the trigger and since I was down in my home town I picked this bad boy up. It’s out of a 93 f250 if I remember correctly, been to the machine shop and cleaned up and bored .40 over, picked up this HF stand and luckily I get deep in those squats and I just squatted this baby up. This is going to be a slow project. I’ll be collecting parts for it here and there when I find gold deals or just buy them etc, as the original 302 is still running just fine. It was a good deal I couldn’t pass on and if I decide to go another way aka 363 dart then i know I can flip this block no problem and get my money back or even more. What I’m thinking is 408 stroker kit, I wish I didn’t have to get rid of my current long tubes but I guess I’d have to get swap headers. More than likely get a TFS 351 intake so I’d shelve my GT40 or sell it idk that’s a long time from now. I would probably run my current 60lb injectors, and whatever else I could use off the current motor. I’m not sure about my current tfs 190s but if I can run them and get them ported etc to flow even better I will VS having to go up to 205s. I’m trying to figure all this compression ratio crap out and what would be ideal for a street car. I do still plan to have a supercharger on it. Again it’s a ideas and plans currently nothing absolute and no time frame. I just figured I couldn’t pass on the block as it was basically free and like I said if I change my mind well I am sure I can sell it and make some cash.

Just read through last few pages! Glad you’re up and running again!
Every time I see that floor, I start getting the itch to do mine! Car and garage look great!!
Thanks my dude appreciate that. Get on it! It’s not that hard, won’t regret it, and really turns the garage into something a little extra special

Found these local, need a little work but what’s your all’s options who have these seats or sat in them. I have some 2017s in currently but can get these for 300 but think he will do 250. Would like to keep the black but do a scarlet red suede middle. Recaros are just hard to find.

You need to really love those seats to run them. If you are on the fence, dont drop $1k+ on buying and refinishing them. I was going to run those exact same seats, but I wasn’t in love with them ebough to do it.

if you want Recaros, look overseas. Guys are shipping them in from Asia where they are in practically everything out there.
