Default 351W or 302

My pony died.[sm=smiley19.gif] So far all i know is the oil pump shaft somehow got twisted in half. I learned this from looking down the disty shaft. I'll be inspecting it further either tomorrow or in 4 days. If what I think happened happened does anyone know where I can get a balanced crankshaft, rods, & bearings for really really cheap? This may be a good chance to go for the 351W swap, but I have a good bit of money into the 302. What do you all think? If I do get the 351W it'll be a used one. Keep in mind i'm not rich (was told parts for the 351 cost more) & My friend has some 302 heads for sale that he said have seen more machine shops than terminator.[sm=smiley15.gif]
(yes i did edit that message just to put in that smiley)
(& that one)

If you have a limited budget (like me ), I would stay with a 302.
Yeah, the extra power would be nice at the track, but on the street, it wouldn't be worth the extra $$
