    i just cant decide on what powerplant to go with. the 351w block has a high nickle content which is good for performance builds, and the 302 is just a plane jane 302

    ^ thats a clean 5.0. mine is gonna need some fab work cause it started life as a 4 banger and im gonna turn it into a pushrod v8 monster lol. I have no clue where to start but I want it to end up looking like a gt. So i get a lot of body parts to buy.
