    Not that you need a lecture, but be careful. I almost killed myself repeatedly in a '68 Mustang with a woppin' 200HP 302 at 16. An aluminum headed 351 in a Fox could be a bit squirrely.

    Be sure to calculate your compression ratio. I used to have a bad habit of not doing that and oh boy did some of my motors end up with compression .... and gasket problems.

    Premuim fuel only sucks on high schooler's budget.

    Get the strongest pushrods you can afford and don't cheap out on springs or retainers.

    Dont waste your time or money on long tube headers. 351's have way more low end torque than you really want anyway.
