Great info guys, thank you.
re: heads - I am leaning toward some GT40 or GT40Ps. I found a set of Ps locally already rebuilt and ready to bolt in for $450. Still researching this to get my head wrapped around it.
re: cam - I found a good deal on a Comp cam that focuses on low RPM drivability, which is what I am after (not drag racing, etc). Here is the can card for it - thoughts? One thing, I bought this cam when I had plans to continue to run the SROD that is in it now, but have since picked up a T5 that will be going in with the new motor, so may rethink the cam choice.
re: pistons - I already bought a set of 3101HCs. I told the machine shop to go ahead an recondition the rods but he wants to wait to touch the block until I bring him the pistons, so I need to run them over there.
re: headers - I am currently running some Sanderson block huggers on the 302 that is in the car. I found an old post from one of the forums that said these heads will work with the GT40P heads - I hope so because i really like them. For s**ts and giggles, here are a couple of pics of the headers today and the relationship to the spark plugs.
Thanks again and please keep the feedback coming. - Farrell
