built a low dollar 302 for the falcon, stock 1992 lower end 302, with some RHS heads, tfs satge 2 cam, knock off rpm intake.., first pass distributor moved all the way around..ran 18.23..fixed that, ran again, did same thing..18.38 (1/4 mile) checked fuel bowls..lol they was bone dry, got that set, the track was nice enough to let me sneak a pass in with a different class that was running 1/8 mile, i got exceeded and forgot to put tranny back in low gear after burn out so i left in 2nd gear did a 1.89 60ft time and ran a 8.12 1/8 mile...first round was just a guess so i dialed a 12.00 and ran a 12.38 1/4 mile and 7.77 1/8 mile..with a 1.76 60ft time..still tons of tuning to do, carb went from the box to my motor and set idle and went racing, got to play with shift points, still has 1962 factory suspension on it to

i think once i get carb dialed in and shift point down and see what cars wants etc..it will run 11.80 range, i have under $1000 in the whole motor, not even that if you dont count the heads that i have had for 7 years ..these runs are on 26x6 inch slicks

did more testing today, still has a nasty dead spot at hit of throttle, going to get some different size squirters and check my gap on accelerator pump, but keep shift rpm at 6500, back timing down 2 degree from 38 to 36 and it went faster..took another 2 out and , its at 34 now ,ran 12.25, picked up 0.13 and almost 1 mph

i can pick up a good 1/2 if it had good suspension, it just dont have any squat in the rear or front end travel, going to get some front spring and shock and rear, and try a few different carb spacers

Make sure the control arms and the spring perches are nice and loose . Loosen up the advance in the dist.. That will surprise you ,and its cheap.!
