They might be a tad optimistic on power, but it's a decent kit. I'd get a roller cam, flat tappet cams these days can be really pissy with modern oils, and require specific break in.

Stock 302 cranks are pretty strong, about as strong as the block. But the rods leave something to be desired, they're not terribly robust and are rather weak in regards to rod bolts/shoulders. A...

I wouldn't trust the stock bottom end for 400hp. Living on borrowed time, and you might not be able to get the compression where you need it.

But a nice custom cam and some AFR or TFS heads can...

I don't think they look that bad. Someone definitely could make a really nice looking one that had a classic shift handle look to it. Make it seem like it belongs.

You get a shorter throw with a remote though. If you have a longer shift handle, your lever is longer and you have to row more. The idea behind the remote is that you can retain use of the short...

Mine only rub in extreme circumstance, and only because I'm lacking an additional ~1/2" of backspacing.

8" wide wheels can fit on 67+, but everything has to be just right to avoid rubbing. And...

You can fit 8" in the front of 67+, but it's pretty intolerant of incorrect backspacing and requires some tweaking to the fenders in most cases. It also requires really good suspension, but you'll...

That exact same failure happens a lot on the 1250's though. I'm wondering if they changed the material they use in more recent years. Or it could be a combination of things, regions with wider...

460 is a nice engine.

I'm not a fan of big blocks except in high powered drag applications, but they do make a ton of power relatively easily. And 460's run for a long time.

I asked specifically because of the 1250's. Tons of people have issues with them tearing.

I've never been able to get a pair to last longer than about 12-18 months.

Also, don't try to force a little extra in either, some guns can get their locking mechanism jammed on the zerk that way. Makes it a real pia to get it off.

I've had the same issue, with a newer gun that seals on the zerk really well, and especially newer arms/joints. There's so much pressure inside the fluid cavity in the joint you can't push any more...

Is the gun rock hard when you try to add grease? If the joint is saturated, then there will be too much pressure for the gun to pump against. Especially with newer ball joints that seal a lot better.

Not necessarily, you'd be amazed at how much real estate DOHC engines take up. All those valvetrain components need a lot of space, and the heads end up being absolutely huge.
