You will need a twin turbo set up for a 302.

Why not get a supercharger if you are only looking for a "little" boost? It would be less technically challenging and easier to install.

you need a special carb, you mght want to efi that bioch, drive it for a while then turbo or sc it. I had the exact same setup on my convertable:
tsjoshhuckaba
f cam and all, with the e-7 heads 5# boost 12.80s, j heads too fast couldt control it blew a head gasket rolled across the traps 11.80 80mph, gt40 heads 11.90 5# boost and 11.00 10# boost. I used to street the out of the car, drive from needville to rankin makin 10#s of boost, race all night and drive home. I found that you need to oring the heads over 5#s, people may tell you otherwise, but I have been thu it dozens of times, oring=safty. You also need a 6al or somthing similar with a rev limiter so you dont blow that bioch, its real easy on boost to over rev.

+1 Super charger is the way to go on the big motors. They handle the mechanical strain better and are easy to setup in comparison.

not true, turbo is the way to go, non parasitic on the motor, isnt used until you hammer it.

seriously wrong in all kinds of ways. i'm not even going to address the specifics of your incorrect post. I for one enjoy your posts, most are informative, but seriously, if you dont know factoid, dont spread whats wrong.
Do some research and you shall see.

turbo is def the way to go, but tuning a blow thru carb is a bioch. more fuel with more boost is tuff on a carb.
