    The bigger the better. There's a guy here in town that has a 460 punched out to a 501 for sale.

    Those are great pics.

    Does it do any good to bore out a speed density motor? Or add a performance cam?
    Aren't you still limited to the factory fuel map?

    Not that I'm speaking from any type of extreme knowledge, but yes you are limited to the factory fuel map, but you can add somethings and get some performance.
    My 302 in my 2 door was bored, I think, .40 over, got a speed density cam from Comp, GT-40P heads and matching headers. Runs great. I also put larger injectors (I think 19 lbs). It ran rougher with the injectors but I just put a metering block on the idle control for now. Just to carry me over until the new engine.

    I bought a mass air pigtail years ago. Four wire hookup and swap two wires for the injector firing order with the 351. Dunno if you could do that to a 460 but its worth looking into.

    So my dad thinks i should get out all the wiring and change it from fuel injected to carb, but i'm not sure he wants me to do that so if anything ever brakes out somewhere i can get parts easyer and acctrully fix it but also beacuse when we mod the motor a bit and give it max torque and take the smoke off were not quit sure what its going to do to the computer, beacuse all the vacum and everything has plugins from the wireing. but i dont think i want to! if i can get the smoge off and have the eigine look beast with out to much wireing everywhere that would be great and have the vacum crap pluged in to the harness eliminated without messin with the computer of the truck and all that would be sweet!!
