For the soundtrack I went to the Tone Dr and he wrote me a prescription for
some Doobies, (the legal kind). Thanks, Dale, for another awesome lesson!
If you are a guitar player, or want to be, I suggest that you visit the
ToneDr channel. He is great player and teacher and just an awesome guy!
Project 460 Fox Mustang Part 2
Porting and polishing the cylinder heads, assembling and firing up the 460.
This engine was built for Project 460 Fox Mustang when the plan was for a
street/strip car. After finding a super deal on a lot of go fast(er) parts,
the plans have changed. This engine will be sold and a new, more powerful
motor will be built for mainly drag racing. To see the engine run, skip
ahead to 5:50. Thanks for watching!
Specs on this engine are...
1978 460 Ford Engine Std. bore
New Speed Pro flat top pistons
new rings and bearings
new high volume oil pump and pickup
new Fox Mustang oil pan
New Edelbrock Performer RPM intake manifold
New HEI distributor
New Summit hydraulic cam .503 lift 280 duration
D3VE cylinder heads ported and polished
Holley 780 cfm vac secondary carb
Ford 460 trying to "WOT launch" from dead stop to 90 mph
Just me messing around... Trying to launch WOT requires "pedaling" to
control wheelspin even with a spool. New carburetor!! 650 Holley DP with
custom 1:1 linkage and ford kickdown by myself. This very mild 460 engine
is well matched- cam, carburetor, and intake are all done making power at
5500 rpm. Still running manifolds also. Had some carburetor heat after a
1 hour drive.
Ford 460 Acceleration 1971 LTD 20-70 mph(6.4 sec)
My new 460 in my 1971 LTD. C-6, 2200 stall, 2.75:1 ring and pinion, about
400 hp 530 lb. ft. Car has a huge amount of power. It short shifts(4500
rpm) and hesitates because of a heavy secondary spring(black) and still
accelerates like mad. I'm going to do some carburetor tuning and find a
way to shift manually while holding the camera, then post a new video. I'm
pretty sure it will hit 100 in around 10 seconds properly tuned.
