Shelby11, In future posts about your car please put ALL info. I had answered your question by looking in my Haynes manual. Didn't realize until I read another of your posts that you had a Chevy. I gave you Ford info. Might have made it run better though. LOLOLOL

a 5.0 L ford engine is a 302...not a 305. true chevy people know this...so...i didn't see the correct response. FYI...it's 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2

Chevy vs. Ford 5 liters

Well it doesn't help that Ford calls their 302 V-8 a 5.0
It's really a 4.9 liter
I guess the Ford Marketing Dept. didn't care for "4.9"
lol

Also I think Ford's NASCAR engines (4.9L 302s) are actually bored out to 305

My 4.9 is a 300. Don't matter though, this year they started putting in a 4.2 in their new vehicles.

So it's a Chevy 350 and Ford 351 both (5.7L) bored out to 358s for NASCAR

Fords 300 straight 6 is the 4.9
So the 302 V-8 has to be a 5.0 (for marketing)
Even though it's 4.9L

Whoo...

not sure what...

...bore and stroke is used to achieve the 358 cubes....but the blocks are anything but stock...and why then do they call it stock car racing? who knows...there ain't much stock about nascar anymore.

as for metric vs standard volume displacement...none of them are equivalents...figure it like this 61.02 cubic inches = 1 liter. play with it and you'll find that few, if any, equal what they call them or what they really are...
