Product Description

Edelbrock 367 HP Performer RPM Top End Engine Kit for 289 or 302 Engine.

Take the guesswork out of making power. Edelbrock's top end kits consist of dyno-matched components to bring you complete, affordable power in one package. Edelbrock's kit has proven to make 367 HP and 340 ft/lbs of torque. Simply add the Edelbrock carburetor best suited for your application and get the "seat-of-the-pants" feel you've been looking for.

Edelbrock has been in the business of getting more power from Ford’s small-block eight-cylinder (and other engines) since before the Mustang was even around! An old-guard member of the hot-rod family, Edelbrock began tuning Ford vehicles in 1938, and these Edelbrock top end engine kits really showcase everything they’ve learned. Making power is a game of inches, but the combination of parts in these well-thought-out kits gives you a direct route to the dialed-in, clean running engine you’ve always wanted.

Engine Tuning as an Art

The art of engine tuning has come a long way since the Edelbrock name first graced the industry. There was a time when you had to guess about what made power, or use the “butt dyno,” as we call it. No longer is this the case. You can be sure that each of the parts included in the Edelbrock top end engine kit is the result of hours and hours spent testing and tuning in high-tech facilities. These parts have been honed by the crack team from Torrance, CA, for optimal performance, and by using them in combination, the effect is multiplied.

You can be confident that the Edelbrock top end engine kit will make more power for you, and the fact that each of the parts included is a quality Edelbrock piece means everything will fit just the way it was intended. It’s like having a car that’s tuned from the factory. Each of the parts has been designed with the use of the rest of the kit in mind — all the gaskets will fit with perfect tolerances, and every bolt will seat just the way it should. This means that, down the road, your vehicle will continue to perform without the reliability issues that can plague modified cars.

This particular kit focuses on top-end power, which is an excellent way to build a naturally aspirated engine with the snappy throttle response you just don’t find on modern cars with electronic throttles and low compression. Free-flowing heads allow a bigger charge to make its way to the combustion chamber, and are aided in their mission by an Edelbrock air gap intake manifold. The updated flat tappet Edelbrock camshaft brings it all together by tuning valve opening and overlap, maximizing the power from every charge. Not only does an engine that burns fuel more efficiently make more power, it’s also cleaner and more fuel efficient (assuming you can keep your foot off the gas!).

You simply can’t go wrong with this kind of kit from Edelbrock. If you’re looking to keep the stock block in your 289 or 302, but want to free up a few horses under the hood, then this kit from Edelbrock is a no-brainer for your build. Coming with everything you need to take your 289 or 302 from lean to mean, make sure to pick up this top end kit from Edelbrock today!

Kit Includes:
- Performer RPM Hydraulic Flat Tappet Camshaft and Lifters
- Pair of Performer RPM Cylinder Heads (complete)
- Timing Cover Gasket and Seal Set
- Cylinder Head Gasket Set
- Pushrod Set
- RPM Air-Gap 302 Intake Manifold
- Intake Manifold Bolt Kit
- Cylinder Head Bolt Set
- Performer-Link Timing Set

Carburetors, exhausts, intake manifolds, and superchargers are just a few of the things that Edelbrock provides, giving you many ways that you can get the most out of your Small Block Ford with high quality performance products.

Edelbrock Top End Engine Kit Performer RPM 367 HP 289/302 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Kit! I pieced together this kit unplanned. Would have saved some money had I just bought the kit which I recommend doing. I installed this on a 289 bored .03 over. Running a Edelbrock 1405 600 CFM carb with Heddman ceramic coated shorties. Ignition is a MSD ProBillet Distributor w/ Vacuum Advance set at 14 degrees BTDC. Trans is a T-5 connected to a 3.50 Posi-Spider Rear. Car sounds nice and is a vast improvement over stock. The 1405 carb was too rich and I had to jet it down. I live in the Southwest desert and I am running mine 2 stages down on cruise and power, and 3 stages on secondaries. I called Edlebrock and they are surprised about this. The fuel pressure and floats are all within recommened specs so I think the 600 CFM is at the edge of too much. I am going to try a 1404 500CFM carb and see what happens. Anyway, this package makes the car GO! If you are going to overhaul your car, I recommend doing it in stages. Upgrade the suspension and brakes first. There are some nice suspension packages out there that are easy to install. At a minimum, put in disc brakes (ideally 4 wheel) and upgrade the steering if able. Mine is still stock but drives and turns smooth. A collapsible steering wheel is ideal for increased safety. Put in some subframe connectors. I would also install some torque boxes as well. Next focus on the drivetrain. Make sure your trans is up to the task of handling the increased power and a posi helps in getting that power to the wheels. Upgrading to an 9 inch if you have a 8 inch rear is not necessary with this kit. I have been running my 8 inch for 2 years now with no problems. With the T-5 and 8 inch, it is balanced for this kit. Finally do the engine upgrades and you will know that your car can handle the increased power.

Can you use stock pistons with this kit?also if the idel speed is recommedned from 1500-6500 would my car stall under 1500 rpm?

Asked by: Cship1970
No, not without checking piston to valve clearance, and possibly fly cutting the pistons to clear the 2.02" intake valve. You will also need with this Kit a Stall Converter around 2,400 - 2,600 RPM Stall, the reason is so it idles nicely in gear when sitting at a stop sign or light.

Will this kit fit 2004 mustang gt 4.6 2v sohc

Asked by: Jovas408
No sorry, this kit is for the 1965-1995 289/302 small block Fords only, not for the 1996 and later 4.6L mod motors

Can you please tell me if this kit has a mild camshaft? I.e.  Will my engine still idle smoothly when the kit has been installed?

Asked by: AGee
The Performer RPM camshaft that comes in this kit will not idle smoothly, It has an aggressive and noticeable idle, it also will require a stall speed torque converter with an automatic transmission. If you're looking for a smooth idle, check out Top End Kit 2027

Edelbrock Top End Engine Kit Performer RPM 367 HP 289/302 Video Transcript
By Bill Tumas: We're here with Cary from Edelbrock, who's going to tell us about their Power Package Top End Kit.

Cary: Excellent. Thank you, Bill. This is our Power Package Top End Kit that's our Performer RPM Series kit. We offer two different kits, the Performer Series, and an RPM. This particular kit is a horsepower range for about 367 horsepower for the 289 to 302 engine platform.

This kit comes with a cam shaft. It comes with the lifters. It comes with our air gap intake. It comes with our RPM cylinder heads. It comes with the hardware, as far as head bolts are concerned, intake bolts, fasteners, 7/16 spacers for the head bolts, all the gaskets necessary to do this as well. So any gasket you're going to need, from your head gasket, all the way on up to your intake gasket, and including your carburetor base gasket. It also includes the timing chain that comes with it.

We don't include the carburetor. We leave that up to you, because some people like a bigger carburetor. Some like a smaller. Some like the AVS or the adjustable vacuum secondary Thunder Series, or the Performer. So we leave that one up to the customer.

Bill: Okay, tell us a little bit more about the heads that are included in this kit.

Cary: This is our standard Performer RPM head. It's a fully loaded head. It comes complete, ready to bolt on, with all your screw and studs, your guide plates, loaded with valves, retainers, keepers, and springs. The actual valve size on the intake is 190. The exhaust is 160. And the intake port volume is 170 cc.

Bill: And these heads are matched to the cam shaft included in the kit.

Cary: Absolutely. The heads are matched to the cam and the intake that are included in the kit to give you that utmost power out of a matched performance setup.

Bill: Now what are the benefits of buying a kit like this, versus just going to the catalog and grabbing random parts?

Cary: Now the nice part about buying a kit like this is it comes with everything you need to do it, from gaskets, to products that are matched together. And it takes the guesswork out of the actual engine build itself. So as long as you have a short block, once you have that design, then you can actually bolt all of our products on. You have all the products that come in one box. It makes it very simple.

Bill: Pick your carburetor and go.

Cary: Pick your carburetor and go.

Bill: Sounds good. Thank you.
