    Hi guys, I'm new to the Foxbodys. I just acquired a fresh short block in a trade. Was told it was a 306 but after researching the piston numbers, looks like it's a standard bore 302. I attached a pic if anyone can confirm or deny this. But either way, I would like to build a street engine with the occasional track use capable of 400-450 hp for starters. I'm just wondering if I should use this short block (i have paperwork for the crankshaft being checked & repairing broken bolts) or if I should sell it and find another. Keep in mind I'm on a family budget lol & I've never put an engine together, I do most of my work on my vehicles but if putting the motor together is too much I'm gonna have to have a shop do it. Thanks for the help![​IMG][​IMG]
