    Question for everyone - Been doing some reading and it seems that the Boss 302 was rated at 290 hp. If that's the case a slightly modified (Power Performance top end package from Summit ) 289/302 naturally aspirated engine shouldn't need aftermarket rods and the such. I guess what I am asking is a set of H - Beam rods (Crower,Scat etc.) is considered overkill or money wasted on this type of engine? I would rather put the money towards additional parts if it will just be money wasted so to speak. I plan on driving it hard but not strip time. Opinions welcomed...

    Do you guys think that this gack would require a honing or oversize bore. Engine is currently at 0.030

    Bottom of the cylinder bore. The engine was locked up and I had to get it unstuck, while tapping the rods out one of the bearings dropped in and gacked it when taping the rod out

    Just make sure there isn't a burr there that would gouge the piston skirt.

    Otherwise, carry on.

    Unless it is a 289 K code motor the stock 289/302 rods are great for knocking holes in the oil pan. 5/16 rod bolts and spindly rod ends that don't have enough material to drill for 3/8 bolts safety you need good rods if your going to run over 5000 rpm.

    Found some Crower 4340 Sportsman rods used along with some pistons by sealed power for around $500. I’m wondering if that is a good deal and how can I check the rods to make sure they are good?
    And yes I do want to spin it above 5k occasionally! :D:D

    LB, I assume you are joshing us, but the price is $18,500. The car has been for sale on an off for the last year. I looked at it about a year ago. Price was the same then too.

    That gold looks great. I'm considering a metallic color, maybe copper or silver with some fat metal flake in it. Or maybe I just stick with the old mint green...

    LB,

    No, I know that the ad has the wrong price. - I just figured you knew that it was $18,500 and not $185,000. Sorry for the confusion.
