It has a 302 bored .030 over to a 306, it has higher compression pistons (flat top), an Edelbrock 600 CFM 4 barrel carb, an Edelbrock Performer RPM Intake Manifold, stock heads, a bigger cam with about .410/.405 lift intake/Exhaust (has a solid flat tappet cam), Longtube Headers w/ a 3" collector, Dual Flowmaster 40's, initial engine timing is set at 17 degrees, removed the flex fan and installed an electric, I only have the alternator and water pump running off the alternator, it also has a oversized oil pan. Behind the motor I have a 32 lb Ford Racing Billet Steel Flywheel, a stage II performance clutch, and the original 3 speed top loader with 3.03 gears. I didnt push my car too hard in this video, I more so just wanted to hear it. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.
