All,
I'm fairly new to the StangNet scene. Restoring a 1969 mustang convertible. I have the original 302 engine. 3 spd. tranny. Looking for a couple engine possibilities:
Build up my existing 302, bore .30 over, GT-40 heads?
Drop in a 95 302 cobra(looking for an inexpensive one that needs a little work)
Drop in a 351W (old or newer needing rebuilt)

Obviously, I'm for getting the most bang for my buck. I want durability but enough power to set you back in your seat a bit. Mostly, for cruising and beating the doors off cameros. Does anyone have any suggestion or links to posts on here?

Welcome aboard.
Liking that convertible!

I've always dreamed of making a 69 vert Boss 9 or Boss 302. Sort of factory 'what if' car.

They sell a kit to bolt a 460 into it. Just saying.

Something more radical than a base 302 for sure. She's looking decent from above but underneath is a mess

The GT 40 heads will work . If your looking for best bang for buck . The heads off a V8 exploader are the same except they are of course iron .
