I am looking too replace my worn out 289 with a little more pep. I am def. not looking for something thats a total over kill like a stroker or anything like that. What do u think of this combination? I was thinking about buying a 5.0/302 HO short block from p.a.w and topping it off with edelbrocks performer rpm package. I just get some good zip from that combo without being too much of a overkill correct? I also have a t5 ready too be installed, but i am waiting till I do the engine swap as well. This is going into a 66 coupe by the way. Anyone have any ideas? Or can think of something better. I want something that is quick, not the fastest in town but still gets up and goes. I am not looking too do a stroker because of price. Not that the edelbrock combo is cheap but its affordable.
