351 junkyard

Anyone know what the best vehicle to get a 351 W at the junkyard would be?

I got one from a 1988 econoline van fuel injected non roller block, kind of hard to fit a 351w roller that isn't cracked under the cam bearings

If I got one out of a Eco van can you throw a hydraulic cam in and trickflow heads off of a 302?

94-up trucks or vans had the roller ready blocks. Common issue is that they can be cracked under the cam bearings but not all are.

Bolting 302 parts to one is about useless though, it'll make the same power as a 302. More torque yeah but unless you have a stump pulling truck that's not really going to help when it falls on its face in the 4k range.

But yeah 302 parts do fit with a few mods.

We'll I have and E-303 cam and trick flow heads with 1.7 roller rockers with intakes and I know i have to get different intakes and exhaust. And my car has suspension mods and bigger fuel pump and injectors with pulleys and a bigger radiator. I mostly want to just use the trick flow heads and il buy a trick flow cam for it along with intakes and exhaust and probably new pushrods because I think you need bigger for 35-. Would this be a good setup? Along with 351 balancer and flywheel with cobra clutch

You'll need new pushrods, you'll have to measure for correct pushrod length. TFS heads would do half decent on the 351 but are still small at 170cc and you are going to be limited on cam selection due to the valve reliefs. Call Ed Curtis, don't just go tossing some junk OTS cam in there. Also, you'll need the swap headers, 351 swap brackets and a few other things. A 351 is pretty much a drop in but you will need the cam bearings pulled and underneath inspected. Only way to tell if the block is cracked and if it is, you just bought a boat anchor. That's why I suggested the Fordstrokers kit. You know the block is good.

You really do get what you pay for. Also, NOS is a brand of Nitrous kit, not Nitrous itself. Ricers call it "naaawwwsss". Other companies include Nitrous Works, Nitrous Express etc... #OCD
