I am glad to see the new forum. I guess I'm one of those guys who goes "both" ways. I have a galaxie with a 428cj and a 89 mustang with a 460. I would happy to try and answer any questions anyone might have on this swap.

Let us know about what's in the 460 and how the mustang does at the strip if you know. This type of info. is valuable for people trying to build to a specific performance level.

I have an 89 lx hatchback. I have a 75 460PI motor that is stock 9.0:1 comp., standard bore with a Mellings solid cam, .595int/.621exh/244 [email protected],
a Edelbrock Performer RPM intake with a Holley 850dp carb. I have Hooker SuperComp headers with a
full 3" exhaust using a Mac Flowpath catback system. A C6 trans with a TCI 10" streetfighter conv. A 9" rear from Moser with 3.70 gears and a
Detroit Locker. I have done no work on the heads
at all save for new springs and I really just kind of slapped the motor together for mule while I sorted the car out but it ran so good I have just left it in. I've only taken it to the track about 4 times but my best E.T. so far is [email protected]
using Hoosier 27X9 Quicktime Pro DOT tires.

That's a really solid time, nothing to sneeze at. That looks like a pretty good torque cam, quite a bit of lift with relatively low duration. Not trying to tell you what to do, but I know taking the thermactor hump out of the exhaust is a guaranteed 20hp, just in case you ever want to go faster.

I run a 557 bbf in a 1980 Fairmont now and just about all the components available for the Fox mustang will work on the Fairmonts, 83-88 T-Birds
even the LTD 4 doors and wagons...the possibilities are endless, just throwing my 2 cents worth

Glen,
Let us know more about your motor. Did you use the Coast kit? Just asking because they're the only one I know of selling it in kit form right now. Did it require much clearancing on the pan rail? What does it require for heads/intake/cam/carb.

the block is a D0VE AA block with splayed caps
with a set of Carrera rods(2.200" crank pin, 6.700"rod and .990 wrist pin)
everything swings on a Bryant forged steel crank with a 4.500" stroke and a set of Bill Miller pistons sized to a 4.440" bore
I do not know about a wet sump pan setup because I use a Weaver dry sump oiling system.
This setup is really quite simple and very reliable. with a set of Blue thunder chevy exhaust port heads and a 1150 dominator I dynoed this engine and it makes 1093 hp at 7400 rpm and 882 ft/lbs torque at 6600 rpm and the engine never goes over 8200 rpm

Man oh man Glen that's one beast of an engine. I have been gathering parts for a stroker engine and have a few questions.

I'm assuming this is using a Victor manifold. What type of porting work has been done to it (if any)?

Did you get the heads flow tested (if so what #s did they flow)?

What size cam are you using?

How much rod side clearance are you running?

Thanks,
Mike
