460 out of a 71 Lincoln Mark VIII. D0VE heads that have lots of port work done to them. Cam is a "RV" grind, [email protected] with 0.494"/0.512" lift. Installed BBC rocker studs and used the stock 1.75:1 rail rockers. By using the BBC studs, we were able to have adjustable valvetrain. Pistons are the stock, small dish ones with 10.5:1 compression. D6 spreadbore intake that has been extremely ported and the phlenum opened up like a normal dual plane. 2" open spacer adapts the spreadbore pattern to the square bore pattern and a 1" tapered 4 into 1 spacer on top of that. Carb is a 750 Holley Double Pumper with annular boosters. The engine has pulled 7,300 rpms on two different occasions and that is with a basically stock short block. Exhuast is Heddman Headers with dual 3" exhaust. There are mini stacks hidden in the box, it helps push the smoke up.
C6 with stock Lincoln torque converter. 3.00:1 mini spooled 9" with 31 spline axles.
The truck is a Camper Special, so it is an original 460 truck. The original engine lasted about 2 years worth of competitions. We get a 30 second run and are tied down to a steel pad. The new 460 pulls a lot harder than the old one, but that could be cuz it was 365 hp, 500 ft lbs-stock. Truck usually pulls about 5600 rpms in 3rd gear and with the 31" tires and 3.00:1 gears, that equates to about 172 mph.
