    agreed, Im going this route once I go EFI, the stealth tank can handle both EFI and Carb Set ups. its matter of getting a fuel regulator and correct hose.

    to answer your first question: 
    my current 392w stroker had a "street fighter" c4 from performance automatic with a 2500 stall convertor and I had stock open 3:00 diff, it was a good platform and nothing ever broke as I was on street tires. I would definitely look into performance automatic if you decided to stay with the c4 or you can buy their 4spd auto. I decided to go manual as that was the original goal, so I went with a TKO0600 and went with a trutrac ford 9 w/3:50 gears. I was able to put down 360rwhp and 400rwtq after dyno and tune.
    if there was a 5-6 speed auto that could fit with no cutting/mods I would have gone this route.
    For the 302/351w:
    both 302//351w are great platforms, though the power you are wanting to make, I think the 331 should be easy build, but the 302 block has limitations if you are trying to achieve max power, thats when the 351w comes in to play, they can take up to 600hp no problem. 
    price is roughly the same with both engines, with a 351w you are limited to intake options, if you stay with the stock hood, I wanted the edelbrock airgap but I read there was clearance issues with the stock hood and some ppl recommended going with a cowl hood. I went with the weiand stealth intake instead, to keep my stock hood and I make good power overall.
    the 302's are easier to work on, they are smaller and no clearance issues, 
    351w are somewhat wider and taller and can get tight under the hood if you go with big heads and headers, servicing the 351w can be tiresome, which is why some ppl tend to stay with a 302 but 351w can take more power. 
    of course, these opinions can be eliminated if you went with a dart block, then I suggest going with the 331.

    Pro touring is the look I'm going for.
    69-70 coupes always go to the poormans 302/429 boss look. I wanted to be different, wanted to add a bit of mordern ford OE Parts and color. Inspiration came from the cali special, new edge fr500 concept and the termy 03-04 cobra. Silver and Black wheels look so good!
    just a summary of what I went with:

    stock rods are adjustable, but if you looking for performance, they won't hold poly's, I would toss the stock strut rods and go with Street or Track; https://www.streetortrack.com/Street-or-Track-Adjustable-Strut-Rods-pr-16135.html if you are staying with the stock suspension.

    Thanks for the heads up.  Hard to beat this deal.  I've watched for quite a while and can't recall seeing this type of savings on their gauges.

    Update 2: I spoke with autoworks, the offer is only today and tomorrow, so I recommend giving them a call asap if you are wanting to buy dakota digital, I believe this deal is happening because they buy their stuff from them in bulk and are placing their order EOD tomorrow. 
    for the RTX gauges, it is $950 (-$345 discount), plus $30 shipping (not sure if shipping price varies depending on state) but give them a call.
