    Default intake for 460 ?

    Building 460 bbf, stock d0ve heads, 9.5-1, cam is 224@.050 intake and 230@.050 exhaust, looking for 450-475hp. So what intake you guys thinking? Is the weiend 8021 better than the 8012???

    The Weiand 8012 is more than capable of supporting your hp goals and is actually better suited than the 8021 since the ports at the intake flanges of the 8012 will match the D0VE head's intake port entries.

    That being said, a 9.5:1 460 with "stock" D0VE heads and a 224@0.050" cam ain't gonna quite make 450 hp, not even with OT headers. Large-valved, well ported D0VE's, OT headers, a good distributor, and an 850 cfm carb will get you close.

    How much flow from the heads you thinking will generate this power. When I mean stock I'm also thinking good valves, port work, etc. Just not aftermarket heads.

    If you were building this to make 450-475hp, what combo would you run?? Thanks for all the input

    Cool

    Are you running tubular OT headers? If so, that's a big plus. If not, then you are going to need more camshaft.

    Assuming OT headers and a well-planned engine combo with only a little bit more cam (if you must have 475 hp) and you could do it with mildly ported D0VE heads that kept the stock valve sizes.

    Feel free to call for details and we can discuss; I have little time for all the back-and-forth typing but would otherwise be more than happy to help.
