    Qdeezie, I'm new to this forum and still figuring out the ins and outs of it all. Ive been researching topics on here for years and just as of recently joined out of need. I have read and reread your string on building a 300 hp 302 for several months and was for sure going to put some of that knowledge to good use when I stumbled on a craigslist add for a complete 351W out of a 1993 F150. I had already planned on purchasing a MAF conversion kit from fiveologyracing.com so I decided to go the 351W swap instead.
    Im curious to know if the cam selections you had mentioned and heads would also work on my motor since both the 351 and the 302 are very similar in design other than the intake. I plan on retaining the factory EFI that came with the 351 but the heads were on poor condition and I figured going aluminum would almost make the weught difference between the two motors a wash.

    Any insight and knowledge would be appreciated.

    No worries, you are helping me out a ton and it is much appreciated. I am still running stock heads and valvecovers. I should be ok on clearance right?

    Sorry one more follow up haha. Trying to utilize your fountain of wealth. Do i need to replace the roller, or the rockers when doing the pushrods and springs? What is the exact size of the pushrods if you remember 6.250 or 6.248"? Thanks again

    One last question. How do you recommend breaking in the Cam?

    Hey Qdeezie i saw your write up on the 5.0 and how to get proper power from them and it was great. I do have a question though. I purchased a 94 f150 with the 5.0 and was given the comp cams 35-512-8 cam with it. What would i need to do to properly install this. I dont want to half ass it and ruin something. Thanks for any insight you may have.

    Hey qdeezie. Thanks for all of your posts helping with my set up on my 1993 F150. I had a question that I thought I would ask via message instead of using the forum if you don't mind. I saw that you had GT40 heads on your F150. Are you happy with the GT40's, would you recommend them or suggest saving up for performance heads? And is your F150 jacked up with mud tires or is it a street set up? What kind of HP and Torque do you think you're pulling with your set up? Thanks again for all of your insight. Chad

    I will for sure be stealing your idea. Ive got access to some thick stick welding wire which i will run and distribute the grounds in the engine bay, along with 2 grounds underneath the rear seat for a couple amps. Ill prolly just run the same as you did as far as the power wires go, welding wire is just a b*tch to run from the batt to the amps in the rear. They came out of factory with pretty skimpy cables so i agree with you the more the better.

    Oh ok Clean job. I just might steal your idea haha, never had any problems she turns over right away hot or cold but the grounds getting a little green might as well do it all while im at it.. so were the 5 ground locations already available or did you do a little modification? I havent ever chased down where it runs to

    Hey my man i was just snooping through your profile and seen your 3/5 wire power and ground connections, I was wondering how much if at all it helped? I would think it does you more good than me considering you have the bigger amp alternator.
