The E6TE are the worst heads ever (Unique Year. 1986 i think) and they are for small block. A 302EFI (Not H.O.). :shock:

Totally incompatible.

E6TE castings are the first year bbf fuelie castings. Raised intake and exhaust ports. No carb intakes available and unique header flanges needed. The exhaust port is good and so are the intakes but the intake ports are small and very high velocity for truck use / high torque.

C/R with flat tops is about 9.9 to 1 give or take.

These castings need large valves and port work to make any serious power.

Are you saying that we can put a 302 smallblock head on a 460 big block? :shock: :?:

We are not talking about the 302 castings; this E6TE is the engineering revision for a 460 head.

Hi,

There is some unintentional disinformation here that I would like to try to clear up.

The E6TE was used by Ford on both the carburated 460 and the EFI 302 heads in 1986.

The E6TE 460 head, was the standard carburated version and had some minor revisions to the basic castings that appeared to me as some minor revisions of the D3VE nothing more.

The E6TE 302 heads where the "heart" shaped chambered,shrouded valved EFI castings. These heads are usually replaced with the superior E7TE 302 castings

Again, Ford used the E7TE casting numbers for the EFI 302 and the EFI 460.

The E7TE 460 heads featured the raised intake and exhaust ports with 1.94 intake valves and 1.65 exhaust valves.

1967 Mustang coupe, Mustang II front suspension. W/RV camed, D3VE headed, 460/C6 (soon to be 557 CID w/ported police interceptor heads) out of the box BBC headers(with homemade steel adapters)

Shocktower removal enthusiast.

The race is not over till the Fat Block Ford Sings!

is there any SOMEWHAT EASY way to modify a standard intake to work on the EFI 460 heads? I have a TorkerII intake and would like to use it with some EFI heads. If I just need to weld it up a bit and grind, that's no problem. I'd rather do this than fabricate a complete manifold for the EFI heads. Although I've been wanting to make a crossram intake similar to the early Viper intake that would use a set of 4 large motorcycle side draft carbs on each side. I read an article a while ago somewhere here on the internet that took E7 fuelie 460 heads, ported them, and had 2.19X1.71" valves installed. They outflowed ported D0VE heads on the intake side and outflowed the old SVO CobraJet heads on the exhaust. I thought it kinda interesting.

E7 intake adapter

Just thinking out loud, but why could you not just just use aluminum spacer adapters to raise a standard intake, so it could match the efi heads? Kind of like the 351C intakes to a 400M?

I should know that... brain fart I suppose.

The E6TE and E8TE castings are the final carbureted versions of the BBF heads. The E8's I have seen only on motor homes. They are basically just revised D3 castings.

The E7TE and F3TE are the fuelie castings. Sorry about that.

Scott,

Either the stock EFI intake manifold with the injector holes plugged and a carburator adaptor or any CJ type intake will work as long as the lower part of the runners are filled with (preferably) weld or epoxy as the ports resemble raised CJ ports. After they are welded or epoxy the intakes need to be surfaced to ensure that the mating surface is flat.

The E7TE is a good EFI 460 head. However, the best EFI 460 head is the F3TE which features larger intake runners/revised guide bosses and the exhaust ports have also been cleaned up. Also, the valve sizes returned to the older 2.09 x 1.65 spec. I think that since the port contours where revised that they will flow far better than the older E7TE's.

Many people have made the same conclusion over the years that the E6TE is the EFI casting number and I can't blame you for the confusion as the Ford casting number game is difficult at best..

I have flowed both the fuelie castings and...

...when they are equipped with the same size valves they flow about the same ported. 325 to 330 ish with a 2.19" valve.

The F3 casting has a revised bowl that imparts a good bit of swirl into the flow column as it exits the bowl. Charge motion is much improved.

I deal with these heads all of the time and felt stupid after making the mistake.

The easiest carb manifold to fit to the fuelie castings is the victor. The others can be filled and raised to fit but gosh what a pain in the ***.
