460 Fox Budget Steez

Budget build after 15 year break from racing. So why not do a 460 fox with some spray, right?

My goal is to build a 10 sec. 460 Fox for a relatively dirt cheap budget (around $5500)...wish me luck!


Here she is. Picked up on Clist for $500 delivered without seeing the car! Was pleased to find the 9 inch rear end under the rust free car when it showed up.




Cleaned up the engine bay a little with some rustoleum I had at the shop. Still a few more things to get rid of





Scored a 8 pt. roll cage. My buddy installed it and some square tubing sub frames...



All done!




Picked up some draglites on the cheap. Couldn't pass that up and this thing is looking pretty good cleaned up!


(Scored the low head rest seats I wanted too)

Seems like a good starting point

CAR TOTAL $1080

That leaves $4420 for build, this might be do-able!

the car has already named itself, introducing....

"LORD VADER"
"May the 460 be with you."

I guess it helps if you add photos of the most important part! Got the shortblock and heads back from machine shop. Moving along...



The C6 is one i picked up on a deal that was said to be "mildly built for street/strip" I'm gonna change the fluid and seals and slap it in for a go

Got the nose off today and installed the manual rack. Already got my 1.5" k-member spacers in. Need some 90/10s so I can get the wheels back on!

D3VE's?

If not, be careful with those pistons as they are intended for the large chambers.

I ended up machining off the domes on mine as i am running a 466 with D2OE's.

They are D3VE with most attention paid to porting on the exhaust side, and the big CJ stainless valves.

Not bad.

It should be a fast car

Hope that you did some intake side port work as well, as the D3VE's could use it.

Thanks, I'm hoping so.

Yes sir, intake as well, some bigger valves, matched up springs. They came out real nice. I did my research and found the "BBF guy" here in town. Ben building 460's for decades. Super knowledgeable and has been walking me thru the build. Dude's a wizard!!! I need to put some better pics up, they look slick.

Struts and gasket set is on the way, need a nice oil pan to come my way soon...anybody?

Looking good. Seems like when I was buying my parts, I couldnt find a deal to save my life haha. Not many people around my area are ford people. Could find a million parts for a chevy though.

Hey dude talk to "pcdimis" I know he's got a fox body oil pan on his motor that he can't use. He has a build thread on here.

Very nice! This should be an interesting build to follow. I like the $5500 price budget too. I should of thought of having a budget with mine. Maybe I would be done by now if I had!!

Keep up the good work. I'll be following along. Looking good!!

Thanks! Your build looks very nice. Nothing fancy going on over here, just a big motor in a little car lol. I'm hoping it all just comes together. Having fun along the way getting back into racing. It will be done by spring.
