Well Guys , thanks for putting me onto some PH#'s, I'll give them calls next week and see whats to be had?
and the reason for not going the 460 route at this time, I have a few collected parts for the FE motor, I have collected over the years and will save a few bucks here and there..
I just found out about this at 10pm eastern time when the Grandkid called from SoCal, and asked if he could stay the summer...At first he wanted to build a SBC...lol..and I told him Grandpa's tools didnt fit GM products...Of course he being 16 knew better than that...
So then he had asked what motor my Old blue Truck had in it..and I told him an FE ford.. So I figure it this way "IF" he loses interest, I'll have a spare for the truck, and IF he doesnt...Then this time next year we'll be looking for a body for the motor..lol
So as of right now..I'am just trying to run down a good block to take a decent bore, and then I'll have a buddy of mine do the machine work for crossbolting it, and we'll have a solid foundation...
But this is true, I could build 2 460's for what it cost to do 1 FE right...My son's a Mopar freak, and my grandson thinks there ugly!! lol...But I'am trying to steer him away.... He learned to drive in my old truck about 4 years back, and I think? he thinks that....thats all the faster the FE motor will go....So I know when he gets here in Southwestern,VA..a trip to the track to watch some Nostalia Racing will be in order! Some cars that were built before his Dad was a twinkle in my eye!! LOL..
I appreciate all the help guys!!
