Building a big block for my '67 F100
I have a 429 and a 460. The 460 has been sitting outside uncovered for years, so will probably stick with the 429. If the 460 crank is good, I'll more than likely just put that crank in the 429 as I've heard that's basically the only difference. (Is this true?) I have no information on either motor other than they have D3VE heads and 4 barrel intakes. My goal is to convert my F100 to a tow rig for hauling my Mustang and other pickup across country for racing/wheeling events. But I also want a fun hot rod on the street. So far I just have the motor, and am looking to you for opinions on how to build a motor for a go-fast tow rig. This is my first BBF. I plan on making this a ~3 year project with a budget of around $10,000 for everything including painless wiring, aftermarket A/C and a FAST fuel injection setup. If my math is right, after those items and all the other little stuff I find, I'll have about $5,000 I can dedicate to the motor. If it costs more than that, then it does and it'll just take a little longer to complete. I've looked at the SCAT stroker cranks, aftermarket heads, intakes, cams, etc. and I just don't know where to start. I don't want a race motor, and I don't want a tractor either. I want a little bit of both if that's possible.
What are your thoughts? Am I close on budget, and what heads, intake, cam should I be looking for? Go stroker, or stock stroke?
Thanks in advance.
