They shouldn't get uneven by rolling past 100k miles, but they can get uneven if someone takes apart the odometer, and puts it back together again (to change the reading). What kind of maintenance...

The only driveability issue with 3.73 gears is you will lose some highway gas mileage, near 5 mpg. Around town it will stay about the same, you'll just be in 5th a lot more than you used to be. ...

You could also check/replace the simple things - plugs, air filter, cap, rotor, and O2 sensors.

When it stops making power. Probably around 5500 rpm in reality, about 6000 rpm (or so) on the factory tach. Factory rev limit is 6250, in reality, which is around 7000 on the factory tach.

When I put TF TW heads (and cobra intake) on my 89, my gas mileage went up by about 1 mpg. 1.7 rockers had earlier cost me about 1 mpg, so in the end I came out even.

I usually got 20 mpg around town, and 24 on the highway, with a 3.73 rear, with a hci (TF heads) 306. I would accelerate however I felt like, but then cruise between 1500 and 2000, with a lot of my...

I would choose the Holley for most 302 builds, and the TF R for most stroked or supercharged or turbo builds.

I would agree that TF will perform be better than the GT40 tubular (though the GT-40 tubular sure looks cool). Edelbrock would as well, though I agree with MJR that Holley is better.

I've been running an SVO style hood with the opening right in front of the distributor, such that it gets wet in every rain storm. I've not had a single problem...in over 10 years and 150,000 miles,...

The only way to be sure is to check piston to valve clearance. Those K motion springs you listed have a higher valve spring rate than you need for that cam, but that would not pose a problem.

Just cruising, it should be roughly 14.7 (controlled by the O2 sensors). For wide open throttle, for NA, it should be roughly 13.0:1.

You will notice the difference from advancing your timing, but it will force you to run higher octane all the time. It's certainly worth it to me. I'm with Dawson, I advanced mine a smidge at a...

The vss will hold the engine to a fast idle with the transmission in neutral until the vehicle speed is zero, when it will allow the engine to drop to idle.
