Default why does no one build a BBF 460

serious question. because i don't know dick about this stuff. i've always wanted to stuff a big block in a foxbody, and a 460 stroked out to make a gas guzzling street machine sounds fun and a bit different. why don't more people do it? not practical? not reliable?

Weight - too heavy on the front end unless it's a tube-chassis car. And the size makes it difficult to get down low in a stock chassis.

Bbf can be made to badass.The problem is that ford never built a performance 460.They were always torque motors for trucks and land barges.

So you pretty much have to change everything on and in the engine to get them to run good.

I have heard of people putting 460s in foxbodys.But your putting a heavy ass engine in a light car. ..

Surely a Super Cobra Jet and 429 Boss is a performance big block?? Ok they're 429 but dimensionally they're the same.....unless you have the boss motor in which case the hemi heads make it a bit wider

I used to read on here a bunch. http://www.460ford.com/forum/

The 460 can be built to be a badass motor for sure.

Don't listen to these responses. Nothing wrong with bbf unless you try to spray a lot of nitrous then it becomes a problem. Boost is good

Plenty of people do it and they only weigh about 15-20lbs more than a BBC.

Why is nitrous an issue but boost isn't?

That can be said for all factory motors.

10" deck height. Get a late model aluminum head. Use a mopar rod and offset grind the crank; you can make 488 ci with a stock bore.

Easy 900-1000HP, and it isn't going to be any bigger or weigh more that an equivalent BBC with an iron block.

I just don't think they have caught on. I've seen some big numbers from a simple set of heads.
Definitely doesn't have the cylinder head options every other engine does.

Nitrous hits like a cannon being slammed into by a truck.
