Easy 400 HP from N/A SBF with Heads & Headers change!


I just wanted to share this interesting article with you guys.. a stock 302 motor with stock cam.. only by changing heads to a small AFR 165, using 1-3/4" long tube headers and 1.7 rockers.. we get a 405 hp / 380 lb.ft monster Ford engine! Of course, it is carburetted.. but it's just a baby Barry Grant Road Demon Jr. 625

Some of you may be familiar with this article but here it is anyway:

Car Craft

This is another 400hp 302 project with complete parts list & build-up specs:

Ford Muscle

Unbelievable!! And I thought you can only get that much from Chevy!

5.0 is one of the cheapest, most dependable, and most effective cars to mod

That is impressive for a stock cam but at the same time they are only making 1.34 hp per cubic inch so it is far from setting any records.

afr heads, track heat intake, e cam, 1.6 fms rr's, 70mm tb and egr, stock internals and just new rings and bearings, used ROL gaskets to bump the compression up just a tad. Not alot done. Im super happy with my combo, and everyone there was shocked at the numbers. He even shut down the dyno the rebooted everything and reinput all my info just to make sure the machine was working right.

Depends on the brand of course..

I bought a brand new stock aluminum timing cover for my carburetted 302 Stang (comes with a hole for the mechanical fuel pump) for $44 from carpartswholesale.com but if i'd go for some high performance brand names, i'd definitly have to pay more..

but in general Chevy parts are cheaper in price than Ford.. right on.

Very true statement...

In the long run no mods to cars are really cheap...

I think it is possible...

My guess is the motor would not be streetable though...But I could be wrong...

It is prolly Fly-Wheel HP...

Im pretty sure its flywheel also. Maybe AFR can get that much power but I would love to see an average joe throw them parts on and make that lol
