Thought I would post this here as there is no fourm for me to post it in but some one will move it if they dont like it.

With that said I am going to be keeping track of my 460 bird project and figured some one would like to see..

The plan is to be done by carcraft summer nationals in july with that here are the pics so far


Day 1

I took out the carpet and started to remove the GOO tar that is in there as well as remove some of the front end and the dash is out now also got the top of the 460 off and did some measureing.

Day 1 Tear Down












Day 1 Motor

I feel your pain!
You are going to love scraping that crap out!
Just get you a good quality heat gun.
And where some kind of resperator....when the yellow foam stuff starts heating up, it smokes a ton, and smeels like SH!!!!

Anyway, good luck, and whats the plan for the motor combo?

Well the motor is from a 74 bird and I don't think it will be nice enough to drive on the street I am looking at some were around 800 for the combo that I am going to do.

also if you couldn't figure out the basis of the username it used to be a 1990 thunderbird supercoupe and than had a 460 swapped into it

I really want to drive one of those. Even a stock block with a cam and 100 shot would probably put you in the 12s cheaper than building a 4.6. But you have to do a lot of work to get it that far...

Pro street rich at sccoa has all the info.
Search 460 swap and you will find out.
What I have all ready, Custom motor mounts, Fox swap oil pan, Hooker fox swap headders, Pass. side fits no problem, drivers side needs # 3 headder tube mover for steering shaft clearance, High rise intake will not fit under the hood. Brake power booster might be a problem, depending on your mounts and the previous engine in the car.
Then the ignition wires and fuel pump will be the next bridge to cross.
Oh yeah the stock shifter works with a modified bracket.
The ignition wires are where I am at with my 460 XR7.
Pictures soon to come.
I have finally got into the 21 st century.

And remember the 4.6 liter engines are not mounted in the mn12's in the center of the engine compartment.
They are offset to the passenger side.
