    Hey all,
     
    My engine has started making some dreaded knocking noises which I am fairly sure has to do with worn bearings(Crank/Connecting Rod). I have previously taken the oil pan off and know there is more play than there should be in some of the connecting rod bearings. We purchased another car just in time for this one start to break down so I can actually work on the mustang and not worry about how I'll get anywhere thankfully. 
     
    I am looking at doing a rebuild of my bone stock 302 small block. I have 2.5" exhaust with a C4 behind the engine. currently it has a 2bbl intake and carb, but will probably upgrade that. The car is mostly just for crusing and I am slowly working on things.
    It was "rebuilt" when I bought it, though clearly not very well. when I bought the thing I didn't know enough to realize how bad it was done. 
    While I am rebuilding the engine I would like to possibly add a little more budget performance. I am looking to stay in the $900 range for the rebuild not including any machine work that may need to be done due to the failures in the engine. 
    Specifically, what are your thoughts on boring it out?
    I have just started looking into rebuild kits and different components so any advice/suggestions are appreciated! 
     
    Thank you!

    Welcome. A lot of people like using the 351W platform as is or bored out to 408. You can make some real good power with the 408. A T56 trans will give you 5 speeds and handle more horsepower. Modern driveline will give you a complete trans swap kit with everything you need for ~$2500 depending on what all you have already.
    Disc brakes are a must if you don't already have them!
    There is a large aftermarket section for mustangs so lots of looking to do!

    My dogs aren't the best guard dogs as they love people but Oaklin (big guy) is protective of me and Knox (little guy). They both love rides in the mustang (because it is fast) though their hair gets everywhere. Oaklin is an Australian shepherd husky mix and Knox is an American Eskimo husky mix.

    Yes. If you have a flat tire they give you 24hr notice and then tow your car. Very strict on "non-operational" vehicles. I figured if it looked a bit more uniform they might not tow it or stick a million of those notice stickers on my windows. Ha. You can't work on your car either :( But we only signed a 6month lease to get to know the area. Already told my girlfriend I'll be spending the next 5 months in the walmart parking lot working on my car. :P She still thinks I am kidding.
    Moving to Savannah, GA.
