Advise ...soild 302 or stroke it ?
I'm looking for a lil advise
I have a early bronco obviously not a race car or even a stop light fighter , but want something that will move when I want it to.
Currently it has a tired 302 , Holley 600 4 B , long tubes , Edelbrock performer .
Burns oils , I add Lucus to every fresh oil change which seems to help until the next oil change . I'm sure has many miles on it . Does not knock or sound bad I would run this motor until it was none but the lack of power has me wanting more . I know we all have that problem.
I came across a fresh 302 bored 30 I'm not sure of the work but a local shop rebuilt it with some upgrades I'm not sure exactly what was done but drove the vehicle it was installed it , motor sounded really good and had good power . I know this motor would be better then what I curently have but not that much more power to make me want to put it in today.
Should I tear motor down and stroke it which I know is a big road, roller cam, heads at a minimum .
Or do something to the fresh 302 motor and find some more power , maybe heads and cam .... Which If I did buy some nice heads it my wake it up enough for my needs I see Edelbrock has a top end combo .... Or I don't have to have aluminum heads not really looking to save weight but looking for more HP any way .
Guys who may have does this ....were you happy with results ?
So just seeing what Yall think .....
