Just wanted to say hey, and introduce myself...

Name is AJ, and I am here as I have a new edge(2001) mustang that I am just about to get started building a 460 for it, hoping for about 550HP on 91 octane...will be a drag car, streetable at the moment but just barely with the 4.56 gears and full spool in the rearend.

I also have a 2000 F250 7.3l manual, and a 2013 Mustang GT manual

Still looking to acquire a block to start with but have a line on a D1VE-6015-A2B block...any guidance or help is always appreciated as this will be my first full engine build.

Right off the top, unless you're planning on running 1/8th mile or you're going to run some 44" sized tires or spin that motor to 9K, your tail gears will be way low for a 550 horse low RPM motor. Probably in the 3.90 or 4.10/4.11 range would be better.....especially with a 28"ish tall tire. :)
.....And welcome.
