Ok, I bought a set of ford heads for the 460, I got three different results when I ran the casting number...

69' 460
72' Police Interceptor
70' CJ

From many different sites... can someone run and then confirm my number?

C9VE-XX?

How did you get three different results from a '69 casting?

Like Dan said, if they were '72 PI or '70 CJs they'd have a casting number starting with a D to indicate 1970.

They're good heads. I've got C8s ['68] on my 429 and they're the same heads. With flat top pistons my CR is 10.5:1 though, so I have to run high test, yay.

I looked at several different websites. Some said it was one head, others say another... Iunno...

So what kind of power am I looking at with a fresh block, off road cam and what not?
