    What length of hull? In addition to engine work it will probably take some pump and maybe bottom work. So my guess, 5k on up.

    Ouch!!!! That stings a little QuickJet. But yes I agree if you ditch the Ford you can get much more speed and HP out of a Chevy for far less money. But if you want to stick with the Ford do some head work or buy a set of aluminum heads and slap them on it. The downfall of the Ford is the top end, they do not breathe. I would also suggest adding an 850 cfm carb at least. That will wake your motor up like you can't immagine. That should run you anywhere from $2500 to about $4000. Then I would suggest a little pump work; nice rebuild and blueprint should do wonders. this should cost you from a grand up depending on how crazy you want to get.

    These are Chevy guy and don't know what they are talking about with a 460 Ford. Cost will be about the same with all the after market parts available these days. You can build a lot of power with a 460 Ford. Check out www.460ford.com for different builds and also Paul Kane ( LakesOnly) on the boards here. If you want a comparison on Ford vs Chevy, go to Paul's web site www.highflowdynamics.com

    You are right.....I've beaten so many BBF with a BBC that I've never stoped to wonder as to why. Maybe the guys with the Fords that I was racing didn't know how to build them. That's the good thing about a Chevy, you don't have to use any exotic parts to get to 85 mph. Stock stuff works fine (even the pump) especially in a Bahner.
    If I was this guy, I'd buy the 454 Chevy off Jangles in the Spam section, cam it, ram it and go run the #. Of course he can keep the Ford and spend thousands more but that's the nice thing about boating, not everyone has to do the same old boaring thing.
    I say keep it Ford powered. That's one less boat I'll ever have to worry about losing to..........

    Absurd. Compared to the BBC heads of the same era, the BBF heads have superior intake port architecture, superior valve angles, superior combustion chamber shape, superior spark plug location, etc., and those are the things that really matter because mods such as relocating a spark plug or changing valve angles are a lot more involved than simply porting an existing casting design. And the larger bore of the BBF allows for better cylinder filling, too.

    Whatever trivial amount of "superior flow numbers" ( ) the BBC might have on the exhaust side is, 1) easily crutched with a cam in the Ford engine so as to rival the BBC in effect, and, 2) does not in-and-of-itself make up for the BBCs' multitude of above-mentioned shortcomings.

    "Fords don't breathe"....indeed.

    Nothing exotic about building a Ford. Don't have to worry, it will happen.
