Advice on build

Hey.
So I obtained a rust free fox roller and looking to get a build going on it. I know this has been done with people looking for HP #'s. I am looking to run in the 11's in the 1/4 and car will be a track car for the most part. Maybe on the road once or twice a year. The rear end is all set. 8.8 with 4.10's and all supporting suspension goodies. I will also have the weight down on the car as it will be gutted. Now I need engine and trans help. I would like to be carbed and not have to worry about a computer. Where should I be heading. build a 302 or 351? If this helps I found a 351w near me for 200 running. Not sure if auto or manual is a better option. I also do not have an unlimited budget. Kids take most of my money. Looking for all and any advice

Thanks in advance

If starting from scratch then 351w based motor hands down.

There is still no substitute for cubic inches.

Except for fat girls.

351 it is. What's some good low budget heads for it.

Not sure the two go in the same sentence, I would look for some second hand tfs or afr's in the 180-225 range. Heads and cam are probably the two things I wouldn't skimp on...

408w, tko600, NX and a little bit of everything else.

351W everyday in this situation. Also you looking to run 11's with lots of tinkering with things to make it run it's best for the always changing weather or are you looking to run 11's and not fiddle with stuff? Like run and have fun. If it's the latter, I would look at the self learning EFI setups from HOlley, FAST, FiTech, etc..... Not much more (if anymore) than setting up a race carb and it'll do "carb" tuning for you and adjust fuel for weather automatically.

My brother has a 418 Ranger and they have to rejet for track and then at the end of the night rejet to drive on the street again. It was a big enough pain that he put adjust-a-jets in it on it's recent refresh to make it less cumbersome.
