Valve springs, and lifters to be on the safe side.

Oh and anything over .500 on stock valve springs will generally cause valve float as well

Well also with that many miles you'll have to watch your stock cam bearings and rings which might need to be replaced , that was my issue a few months back and I ended up getting a 347 budget block I got for $1,000 but it depends on how far you want to go with your stang!!!!

Yes that's a stroked 302. January I'm dropping a 331 in mine.

Bored the same I believe, just a little less stroke and stress on the cylinder walls. It's not far behind on horsepower from a 347 either.

Here's a basic overview of a stroked 302

It would probably be about the same if not cheaper to buy a stroked bottom end already assembled.

Where did you get your block from, I'm thinking of getting a CHP block.

I got the block from www.latemodelrestoration.com they have a spread every month in the 5.0 Mag and I first saw the 302 budget block fully assembled for $699 then there 347 budget blocks are $1,400 but I bought mine from my brother inlaw for $1,000 because he ended up getting a awesome deal on a 91 lx with a forged 347 stroked stang !!! But check out there blocks, they even do a 7 month layaway on everything !!!

You can't beat the price, you would prob spend more money pulling your block out , send it to a shop have it honed, bored, clean, new cam bearings, new pistons and rings and the stock rods and crank back in!!!!
