460 build advice needed.
Hey fellas, new here. Hope y'all don't mind helping out a guy with no real experience. I've rebuilt a farmall m engine as an adult, and done some minor engine surgeries as a teen. I'm mechanically inclined, jut inexperienced. Lot of terms I don't know, some I do and some I may understand but not know how to execute.
I've got to get some specialty tools together such as dwell meter, timing light, bore scope, stuff like that.
I've always wanted to play with theses engines and finally have come to a point where financially I can....a little. Got four kids so don't have a mill to throw at it, but a few dollars.
What I've got and got in mind....
I have a d9te-da engine, guy insists it's a 429... my research says 460. Will check crank when it arrives. It is a fresh overhaul, .030 over. My plan at the moment is to use the bottom end and purchase all new parts for top end. I want some narly power, and the parts will need to be suitable for later when I stroke it out to 554cubes or so.
So, parts I need some advice on....
-heads, I'm prepared to spend a little here
-intake, want something that is not all about torque or rpm, in the middle so to speak. Was think victor, but low end will suffer I think
- I will be using a fitech Efi setup, prolly the 800hp single. Was thinking of the dual quad. If you think that is a good idea, let me know, I'll go that route.
-cam, this is where I'm lost without hope. I want a choppy narly idle, just because I love the way it sounds, but if that is not feasible for my build then of course , power and throttle response win.
-some truck headers
-electronic ignition, something adjustable, easy to curve(which I don't understand yet). I'm thinking of something msd, advice welcome on that as well.
That about sums it up. I'm guessing I'll need a higher stall converter as well, maybe 2400rpm?
Tranny will be a c6, gears are 380's.
Thanks for your help.
