    Do you have parts now? If your starting from scratch machine work is going to eat most of that up. Now in the event you have a running motor perhaps a cam swap, head work, change pistons and up the c/r. Lots of stuff you can do. pm lakesonly or 058 they are probally the best one to answer this question.

    Figure out what's in the motor first. May need to pull the heads and oil pan off but you will have a better idea of where to go if you know where you are starting from.

    You could go with a stroker kit (Scat, eagle ect.) cast crank, forged rods and pistons to get you anywere from 501-557 ci, then add a nice flat tappet cam/springs and get ahold of Scott (the madporter) on the www.460ford.com and get some detailed instructions on how to port your heads yourself and you could easily have a 600+hp pumpgas motor. Then down the road if you want more you could upgrade your heads and go solid roller cam and be over 700.

    You didn't read the $2,500 budget on top?

    I would suggest to take the motor apart and see what you have. Once you take them out, list the part numbers here and the experts will chime in and tell what you have. Its hard to tell you to just do a cam swap, port the heads and and bore the block, without knowing whats been done to your 460.

    I thought I had a 468 BBC for years, till I tore the engine apart to find out I have a 461 BBC. You could do A LOT with $2,500 bucks if you have a good friendship with an engine builder and machinist. My wife let be use $500 bucks this year, so that means an increase of 3-5mph.

    Well i'm no "expert" but doing a stroker kit with machine work can be done for less then $2500 very easily. No need for part #'s because all blocks are good for a stroker build and the whole rotating assembly will be new. The only thing he will need to know is what size cc chamber heads he has for ordering the right dish pistons and he can find all that out on the website i gave him, where the real BBF "experts" are.

These kits are great for hp levels around 600-900hp or so, much more then that i'd go Scat with a forged crank.

    Filucky gave good advice, check out the 460ford.com site. Porting the heads, bigger valves, roller rocker and a nice solid cam will give you a lot of HP. Not sure on the dish pistions. The stock 460 already have Grand Canyon dish pistons. I used pop-ups (TRW 2443)to get to 10 to 1 on one of my budget builds. It depending on what heads you have.

    Also, make sure you budget for a 10qt oil pan w/rear oil pick-up, or you will be sorry and have to do a build all over again.

    Nobody asked, how fast do you want to go in your gullwing?
