I am in the process of building a 460 for a competition pulling truck. It will never be driven on the road.I found a 460(D3VE) and had to have it bored out .060. One head was cracked. I found a 429 with C9VE heads.Should I use flat top pistons and what size cam should I use. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Hoping for 6000-6500 rpm. 4WD Pickup,410's,4spd. Right now I have a 390 and use 114 octane gas. Thanks

Think about this...with your 460 crank and rods take a set of 429 Cj pistons made by TRW pn 2344LF and machine .100" off the top and recut your valve relief.
This will give you a true "0" deck shortblock.
with a set of D0ve heads with a 72 cc chamber this will give you about a 11.4:1 compression ratio
this is a good combination that is very durable.
And generates a huge amount of torque.
Just some thing to think about.

C9 HEADS WILL MAKE THE RPM LEVEL YOU'VE CHOSEN TUFF TO DO.IT WILL TAKE LOT'S OF PORT WORK.DON'T FORGET IN ORDER TO RUN GUIDE PLATES .250 HAS TO BE MILLED OFF THE ROCKER STANDS.C9 HEADS WORK VERY WELL BELOW 6000 DON'T GET ME WRONG IT CAN BE DONE SPEND YOUR MONEY WISELY!
