You have to ask yourself, and ARF, by bolting these heads on a stock 302, where does this improvement com from, more compression, larger valves, better flow? How much HP increase.

bolting on the heads will get you some just because of the lack of flow in most stock small block ford heads. But it is only part of the equation. To get the most you should look into a cam and the intake. Comp cams has a nice calculator you can download and play with all sorts of variables to see the effect of changes.
