BOSS 429;

I read and reread your post, and I found it amazing that by reworking stock parts for a performance build, and adding the basic (carb, intake,cam, valvetrain, and headers), you were able to turn those RPM's and make that kind of power. That performance shows respect to both your skills and the potential of the 460. Nice post.

cam was a comp cam

solid lifter .649 .642 lift
270 276

108 center

this engine was built for a truck with efi,but at the last min it was stuck in the car,and had an intake change, this cam is not a NOS cam,but the combo worked very well with a bigshot nos plate under the 4500 dom (8896).

the iron cly heads(DOVE'S) WORKED very well,but that's what made all this work all the better. lots of welding,and grinding in and around the ports,and keep in mind this engine was in a good car that worked pretty good also

This combination sounds pretty amazing. Any idea what those ported D0VEs flow CFM wise? I have a set I want to use and from what I can tell they will get me where I want to be with just a 466-472. I am also considering a 521 with some CNC ported D0VES, 2.25 intake valve and 1.76 exhaust...but the lower buck approach looks good too.

Great numbers man, very impressive for an ambulance engine.

Makes me wonder why I messed with small blocks for so long...
