1976 mustang engine build

I am wanting to build 302 for the car, but unsure which route to go either stroker motor or keep crank stock. I was at machine shop today asking for ideas and the guy told me to keep crank stock and put alum heads and cam with 20 shot of nos and i can hit high 10's. He did give me the name or specs of the head or cam. i dont want to spend a fortune but i have some budget for the build. Was wanting to see what people here what would suggest. Thank you

Are you building a car for street or strip or both? Low displacement with a shot of NOS will BE fast, but it won't put you back in your seat every time you stomp on the peddle driving around town. If you want to be slammed back, you need cubic inches.

I want the car to be for street and strip. If i go cubic inches from what I seen the 460 will fit in 76 with modifications and if really wanted more could make it a stroker. i'd want it to be auto trans but not sure which would be best.

No way no how will a 460 fit in a 1976 mustang without extensive fabrication. Your best bet would be a 351 strikes to 408.
