what about a crank.I have heard that ppl put a 351w or 351c crank in a 302 and making it a stroker motor.I dont know if this is ture or not but does anyone know of this being done.I dont think the 351c crank will work because that was just a bigger motor all around

GT40s orGT40ps will both work on your motor, and willprovide some performance gains over the factory heads. Like mjr46 says, the early 351W heads (D0OE) are similar in performance to the GT40s.
