It's built but hasn't been fired up yet. Does that count?

I AM RUNNING A 460 CRATE MOTOR WITH ATOP LOADER AND A 9" REAR-END. HAVE ABOUT 3,000 MILES ON THE B&B COBRA, EVERYTHING IS RUNNING FINE AND SMOOTH. LOT'S & LOT'S POWER AND LOW END TORQUE. I JUST LOVE THE LOOKS AND THUMBS UP I GET WITH IT IDLING AT A STOP LIGHT.

Update, ( 12/26/06 ) I now have a little over 10,000 miles and it is really starting to run strong now. Hang on and let 'er rip !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't ordered my 460/535 HP crate motor yet, but have a question for you BBF guys:

Can I take out the stock cam (588/614 lift) and replace it with the 600 HP cam (647/647 lift) and not put a valve through the piston top?

Default My 460

460 built primarily for street cruising, backed up by a C6 with 3.08 rear gears.

Complete, but on the engine stand ready to be put in.
Edelbrock Torker II (for hood clearance, otherwise might use Weiand Stealth)
Edelbrock 800 CFM vacuum secondary carb.
2.19/1.76 valves. 218/228 cam. Roller rockers. 9.4 CR Speed-Pro hyperuetectic pistons .030 over with coated skirts.

Stock heads machined for larger valves, mild port work and milled .010, Block was decked .030 as well for tight quench area. Supposedly good for an extra 20-30 horses if quench is .030-.040 range.

Haven't had it dyno'd yet, but Desktop Dyno says 469 HP, 510 ft. lbs. I would be happy if it is close to that.

Cool Sign in..

I'm running a 460/560 crate motor, with a few extra tweaks. It's proven to be an excellent all around performer, and hasn't skipped a beat. The only negative is a BIG appetite for expensive gas!

Default Hey Charly

Great looking engine shot. Two comments -

- I can't believe you have the clearance for that intake

- Is that a fire extinguisher in front of the motor ( or nitrous in disguise)

Hello

I have had a 460 for about 3 years and just had a rebuild to 520. It is a pretty wild ride. I look forward to some track time to really check it out.
