I'm considering building up a carbed 351 shortblock and want to make sure I can cram it under the hood of my wagon. I plan on using a weiand stealth intake manifold and a really thin air cleaner probably.

Another question: will all the accessories off an '84 302 block bolt right up to 351W? What year is the best strongest block?

Thanks

The height your concerned with will vary with different intake manifolds as well as different brands and types of carbs.The 351W block has a greater deck measurement than the 302,therefore any accessory that must be attached above the deck of the block will not fit the 351W without modification.
