I was just reading around on other boards and was very interested in the ford 300 they put in trucks as I have been reading it is a great little torque monster and seems to do better then the 302 in almost all areas. What are the reasons for using the chev 350 in the V8 conversions. Is it more b/c they are cheap and it has been done before so there is a good base of knowledge? Any info on the F300 would be good. Anyone do a ford 351 as I like the Ford engine better b/c I grew up around them and I like having the dist in the front of the engine.
