Gotta wait for the finances to straighten out before I can get started but just wanted to lay everything out and get some outside opinions. Feel free to give any suggestions. I'm planning on building a 302 on a 150 shot, i'm not sure how well/long the internals would last to that abuse. So anyone with some heinz sight (sp?) on a similar setup I'm all ears lol. Its just going to be a street/strip/weekend car.

whats wrong with 87,88,93?

87-88 can easily be converted to mass air

93's hypers can take some abuse

out of that list there would be a few things I would change, but if a strict budget is in mind just disreguard my opinion!

I would ditch the CAI.. stock box would work fine

ditch the heads.. buy some afr's/trickflows

buy a custom grind cam

swap out the lakewood stuff for strange adjustables

I would run 31 spline stuff with an upgraded diff

Thanks for the input,and yes i'm going to be on a strict budget. lol

I'm not too familiar with the speed density and wasn't sure how easy it was.

Ya true on the heads, there isn't much of a price difference either.

Also i've found is pretty cheap but if anyone knows other places feel free to lmk. Thanks again

That intake is ridiculously expensive, and probably outmatches those heads.

I agree with you on the years to use, the speed density cars can be converted but it doesn't always work right if you use the re-pinning/splicing method. If you're on a super tight budget, use 31 spline axle with a truck differential.

I dunno, you have some parts that are marginal in price and quality and some parts that are more from the high end of the market. What are you planning on running? Obviously it's gonna be a daily driver?

Personally, I prefer NX over Zex.
