Default 84 f150 build suggestions

Hello guys, first build and am wondering what you gus would build on a tight budget for a tire frier. Its a 2wd with a c6 and 3:50 limited slip rear end. My engine is a 76 f150 460.. The bottom end has to be completely redone. Would about 2000 get me a new bottom end?

Is it a short box or a long box I'm just starting my build for my 89 f150 long box. What's your plan for motor mounts?

It's a long box. I bought the frame perches from a 95 f350 with a 460, and bought the actual mounts at car quest for 35 bucks a side from a 95 as well. So I'm into it about 125 bucks for the mounts but the thing is that they are factory mounts. Not some cheesy l&l product

Looks like a nice starting point. Right now I'm building my 460 for my truck. And with a budget of 3000 and shopping for used parts and the best deals I can I should have my whole motor completely done carb to pan including machine work. I went to the machine shop and let them know what I wanted and what my budget was and they were more than helpful and have given me lots of advise.

my self i would rebuild the bottom end, leave it stock and get a set of aluminum heads.that should give it a good wake up call. then if later on you want to stroke it out you already have good heads.aluminum heads are all over in price hit ebay.they run from $900 and up complete and a rebuild kit starts at about $400 and up.but you could stroke it for around $2000 or less dipending on how much the machine work would run you

Would it be better to build the stroker bottom end first than aluminum heads later? Because even on a stroker aren't d0ve heads acceptable? I inagine a 500+ cu in with fairly stock ported heads would be a torque monster!

I'm shooting for low 13's high 12's as well. My motor is a 1975 460 getting bored 30 over with 22cc pistons and c9ve heads that I have ported following Scott's instructions on the rhp website set up with proform roller rockers block zero decked should be right at ten to one. For a cam I'm getting a custom grind from Scott. I'm hoping to get a good used performer rpm and run a 780 cfm hp Holley double pumper. I'm also running a c6 and a nine with 355's. would like to see one hp per cube but idk machinist figures 475 at least.
