buy a drop in tank pickup, summit fuel system @ 220 dollars

distributor for a 1985 ford mustang (or msd dizzy)
duraspark ignition box (or msd box )
throttle bracket
don't forget to transfer your temp guage sender and any vacuum lines to your new intake/carb

I have that system but ended up upgrading my line to 8an and also upgraded to a return style so I only keeped the pump,regulator and filter.I say get the pump,regulator and filter only and get an 8an line.with this return style fuel system.Product Engineering: got the dual with mines and it runs great and your fuel is on point always.Oh yea also get a sump.

i agree -8 line is better, i was suggesting this kit because it is complete and is about as inexpensive as it gets, for the mods he has it will be plenty good enough ( i've got this kit and it feeds my 351 with a 175 shot so i don't see any problems on his combo

your right but I know one day that line might not be enough and thats when He has to spend the money again.I like to do things once and I learned that the hard way by spending money I didnt need too.I know everyone has been there.:D

I think you would be happier with a dual plane air gap intake. Better on the street, much better low and mid range torque. Had the same set up with the F cam on my '89 GT. Strong combination.

i've used the edelbrock performer rpm air gap intake and it was great in all but these 302's can turn decent rpms and i'd rather a somewhat mid-high rpm style intake, and thats what the vic jr is..i've also thought about the torker II intake..

my windsor with a vr jr intake and a nitrous plate fits under my stock hood but i can't fit an air cleaner on it
as far as which intake, if you have a 5 speed and 373s or 410s then the vr jr makes a great street intake, otherwise get an rpm
i've run a 306 with ported stock heads, vr jr, big cam ( i can't remember the specs ) 650 dp , 5 speed and 410s in an 86 coupe with full exhaust and it was a super fun street car , 12.20s @ 113 all motor on stock suspension and drag radials
