Ford 460 BB vs. Chevy BB 454 WINNER BB 460
8) Just for fun I down loaded Comp Cams Cam Quest 6
ran my engine stats and put in the cam i have from them they say with my stock manifolds and flow master mufflers I will generate 397.9 Hp @ 5k
479.7 Torque. with 9.5:1 Compression. Now my HP and torque increase dramatically if i go with large chamber headers and regular exhaust no cats. Sounds about right. i'll be switching to headers over the summer!!!
I had some fun tonight on it and ran some sims.
a S0lid Roller 460 with a 13:1 compression, High rise Single plane intake, fully ported heads and largest valves available, open large port headers and an 1150 Carb the Comp Cam 296BR_8 will create peak HP 885 @ 7k
and 759.4 Peak torque @ 5500. 3000+ stall
Not to shabby for a standard bore 460.
the Chevy 454 exact same configuration max HP 849.5 same RPM as 460 and only 728.6 pounds of torque.
winner hands down the 460. Numbers don't lie.
The need for a Ford BB Magazine is in need IMO 8)
Just thought i share some fun tinkering with you all.
