Angry 302 TO 351W HELP!

Ive run into a problem and need guidance.Bought a 302 that was .30 over with forged pistons and X303 cam.Bought a set of AFR 185 competition heads to put on it.Pull the stock heads off and the rest of the engine is STOCK! FU<K ME! Now I have a set of $2000 heads without an engine.My buddy has a 351W thats .40 over that I can get but need help on cam and piston selection.Plan to run nitrous and the car will be a street/strip brawler.ANY HELP WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

So why not just get the 302 bored and buy a cam? if you run the 351 you will need lots of other parts for the install plus your pistons and cam you are talking but you will pick up some cid and the 351s are much better blocks.

If I have to build one I would rather build a 351.Like you said its a better block and capable of a lot more.And the build costs wouldnt be that great a difference.I have the option to get one thats been punched .40 over at a decent price.Just need input on what would be a good combo for my heads.
