it will even work with the small flexplate. i had a 157 tooth stuck to a 351W and 302. it definatly gets tricky when using the 157 on a 351C though. i had to grind a section of the oil pan rail lip to fit the starter in. that was funny doing it in the car. the headers should fit too. unless they are some funky 302 only.....the exaughst will need to be touched up though, unless you are going all new then you are good to go.
