460/ZF5 combo gas mileage?

I'm planning to do this swap in my 79 Bronco 4x4 which has a 351M/C6 with 3.50 gears (from what the tag on axle says) with 33s currently (will possibly run 35s later on with a 4" lift and then get 4.56 gears).



I am taking out my 466 out of my 79 F150 (which I still plan to make my toy) and then buy a 460 ZF5 from a buddy of mine.


I am hoping it will give me a little bit better MPG vs this 351M/C6.

Any ideas what I could possibly get?

Yeah, I won't be running that big of tire.

My 460 isn't stock. Bored .30 over, flat top pistons, some little cam, and a 750 carb.
