Ah.....a guy with a pencil. Good for you.dollar for dollar if you had a 460 and a 351 stroker the 460 is more cost adventageous, and a better build. you are looking at $1800 for a balanced Scat 393 stroker kit. plus then you have to send the motor to a machine shop to be taked, bored, and everything else for an average of $800-$1000... thats without cam, intake, etc. so all together you would be in it for more then what i have with my 460 swap! :goodfinge
ahh why don't you check out my bronco info to the left under my name first.. DER! total cost for my whole swap was around $2500.00 including dissassembly down to a short block, only because my motor had good ring seal and bearings still. but the motor cost me $200.00 (73 lincoln continental motor, craigslist), my rebuilt tranny transmission with shift kit, and 1200 stall speed convertor and flywheel another $125.00 (craigslist), headers $200.00 (summit), weiand stealth intake $200.00 (summit), edlebrock performer camshaft $149.00 (summit), FRPP gasket/seal kit $100.00 (summit), F350 engine mounts $100.00 (checkers), f350 brackets and pulleys $55.00 (junk yard), 2 24" long powdercoated stainless steel radiator hoses $50.00 for both (ebay), belts $20.00 (napa), rear sump oil pan $190.00 (LMC), oil filter relocation kit $41.00 (summit) cloyes double roller timing chain $45.00 (summit), holley 670 truck avenger $free (craigslist barter)Ah.....a guy with a pencil. Good for you.
Now go figure what it'll take for mounts, brackets, a new tranny, convertor, flywheel, radiator, drive shaft, exhaust system, engine harness, processor, etc etc....so's he can get that big ole big block into his truck and make it run. When you you're done figuring all that, then add the cost of a full front end alignment 'cauise aint no way one can add 150+ pounds of weight on the front wheels without needing that too.....and don't forget that to keep things even, we still need to add your same $800-$1000 for machine shop services PLUS whatever a good rebuild kit cost for a 460 these days.
Of course, all that has nothing to do with the fact that EFI 460's aint exactly growing on trees these days, and to keep the truck smog compliant, a carb'd 460 won't do.
