    I too am curious. My 302 is becoming a 306 as I type this, and was thinking of going with the more expensive $459 kit becasue of the forged pistons.

    If you plan on super-charging, or using NOS you may want to consider the forged kit.

    What cam are you going to use? Sre you still using speed density?

    I personally never used it, but just to let you know its like a stock rebuild. The only difference is the stock pistons are forged.

    I dont plan on on using NOS or a supercharger, I am going to use just the stock cam, Yes the car is still speed density. The only mods i plan on doing are CAI, Removing the A/C, Exhaust, 3.73's, and maybe pullies.

    That should be fine for my plans right???

    Its not the best kit out, but for just refreshing the motor in which you only plan to throw a few bolts ons onto, it should work just fine.
