Rebuild 289 or purchase crate engine 302
I found a local machine shop can rebuild my 289 for about $3500 to stock with a mild cam or purchase a crate 302 engine from ford for around $3800 plus water pump , carb and intake as well as distributor. I am mainly using this car for weekend crusing . With an estimate of the total cost of the crate engine 302 about $5800 . To rebiuld the 289 ,that is the cost for everything included water pump as well as the intake and carb 4 barrels and a new distributor . I do not know a lot about engine . Can anyone gives advises of which way should I should go. Thanks a miles.........
