While we are the subject of those SCAT stroker kits from yesterday - if you a re looking to build a bullet proof short block the only block to use for your short block engine build ia Ford Racing Boss 302 engine block. Ford announced the return of the legendary Boss 302 engine's return at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in 2006. The Ford Racing Performance Parts BOSS 302 line was conceived because there was an unmet need for engines built from a block stronger than original regular production 302 blocks but more affordable than full race-prepped blocks. The new BOSS 302 engine block features greater strength than most race blocks and offers a street-capable cooling system design, something that race specific blocks tend to sacrifice. Despite its strength and capability, the new BOSS 302 line is surprisingly affordable because of its high volume production. And since it was designed within Ford Motor Company, the engine also benefits from the improved quality and durability that comes with a production type engine.
Features that separate the new BOSS 302 from its competition include:
- 4-bolt mains for lower-end stability at high power outputs
- High-tin 41,000 PSI tensile strength iron alloy for ultimate strength
- Nodular iron main caps for additional strength
- Screw-in freeze plugs for additional more strength and stability
- Front cross-over lifter oiling for high RPM valvetrain capability
- Siamese bores with specifically engineered drillings between cylinders for maximum wall stability and gasket sealing with street capable cooling performance
