Motor came with small chamber ( D0VE ) heads, you will need to get a set of D-3 heads, if you use D0VE heads you will have to high a CR for cheap gas. The D3VE 1973 and later ( but not EFI heads ) is what you will need, this will lower the CR back to a reasonable level. As a plus the later heads have hardened seats already where-as the earlier ones don't. The stock intake should work, there are also a lot of aftermarket, just use a dual plane, the carb will probably work out to be about a 670cfm with vac secondaries. Hope this helps.This is assuming that you aren't looking for a max power build but a fun and peppy motor. Where you want to end up will largely determine these choices.
I finally got my "70 Ranchero finished. The goal was a street/strip fun car and something I could take on our version (Australia) of drag challenge. Due to me not wanting to put a cage in the car, I am restricted to 11.0 for the 1/4 and 7.0 for the 1/8.
I contacted Scott (The Mad Porter)...
my motor will be done next weekend - finally and im curious to what you guys think it will make- im thinking of taking it to the dyno..
Her is the low down on it 572 cubes
4.600 bore 11.8 compression
large lower 800 lift roller
a-460 heads flow 450ish intake
I'm thinking about buying a 1973+ 429 to swap into my 92 f250. I'm looking to get 400+ HP on a small budget. I'm aware this engine has 220hp and not 360 like the earlier ones. Should I get the engine? The bloke is a d1ve a2b and the heads r d3ve a2a
So, I have 460 in my 95 f250. Fuel injected. I'm looking to make maybe 500 to 600 HP. I got new pistons that are meant for a bore that's 40 over, which I'm gonna do. But what else would I need to add to make this happen?
