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.

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.

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

almost a year now. About 170,000 miles.
460 BIG BLOCK FORD MUD TRUCK RIDEALONG LETTIN THOSE 54" BOGGERS EAT!!
Decided to do a video with little different perspective. This is a
ridealong with Kamron in his Ford 460 big block on 54" Boggers with 4 wheel
steering. We got hung up on some off-camber ruts, so Kamron worked that 4WS
and let those Boggers chew! Got a little muddy while videoing, but made for
a cool video! Christy in her Chevrolet 4WD/4WS mudder on skidder tires was

FIRST, YES I REALIZED AFTER UPLOADING THIS THAT I DIDN'T HAVE THE KEY IN
THE IGNITION WHEN I WAS TESTING THOSE THINGS. I DON'T NORMALLY LIKE USING
CAPS BUT IT SEEMS THE ONLY WAY TO GET THIS POINT ACROSS.
Now that that has been dealt with...
Proper Winnipeg winter cold starting.
And yes, I do realize I was testing everything without actually turning the
