    So I have the 5.0 efi followed with a e4od trans. I am wanting to drop a 460 after I do some work to it, but putting the 460 in.
    I have some questions before I put it in.
    I've dont the research on what I want to do to the motor but what I'm consirned about is if I should go carb or go efi. If I go carb what computer would I need if any or could I just have it in without a computer.
    If I go efi I'd need a computer and I would probably pull the engine and trans from a f250/350 and also pull computer but what else would I need?

    I'd like to still have ac and heat if possible.

    Also would it be easier to run the e4od or a c6?

    I know I'd need motormounts, probably a larger radiator, headers for sure but what else would I need, every time I look I see people do the swap but I don't see enough info on how.

    If you have done it please let me know and give me some advice.

    Thanks. If you need more info about my truck ask please.

    :welcome: to the forum Mason.

    If it were me I'd go for a carb setup and C6 deleting the need for
    EFI computer and bell housing swap. Transmission support brace, then
    the drive shaft and U-joint to rear end pinion yoke match would be the next.


    Finding a 460 already in an older truck would be another option.
    I see them on auto for sale internet sites as people are getting
    away from the less than great fuel mileage on a 460 cid and going
    for the more fuel efficient 5.0 / 302's.

    I have a 1974 F100 with a 360 2V, it was much easier before 2001
    when gasoline was less than $1.20 per gallon to keep fuel in that truck.

    Well my 302 gets 11 mpg now so I hear the 460 gets around 10 so I'd take the one mpg for more power and torque, I mean I like driving my truck hard:)
    Do you know how challenging the swap is?
    I could go to some junkyards and look for a efi or a carbed 460,

    I do have f250 springs in the front already so weight shouldn't hurt it,

    For the 460 I was thinking, bore .060 over, pistons, I beams, heads port and polished or new heads, and a cam. The intake would depend on efi or carb.

    If I do make it carb would I be able to still have ac? I don't know if the engine computer deals with that.

    you don't need a computer for AC, and I would go with the C6 and delete the computer.

    So now my question is would I still have my speedo since it is computer? I see c6 and 460 combos on Craigslist a lot so that would seem easy to drop a motor in an just connect starter, and the lines.

    What kind of radiator should I use?

    On the engine could I use a 1968-78 crank, any 460 block, and dove c heads?

    Careful some blocks are different. Anything before the 80s will match up but the 1980-90s model 460 has a different bolt pattern for the trans bell housing

    On a 60-79 model you could use 429 boss heads ;)

    So I found a pair of dove head on Craigslist for 350, and I see some c6 transmissions for about 275 or I could go to the junkyard, pull a 460 and c6 and rebuild the 460 with dove heads and a balanced crank for 50 bucks on Craigslist. Dove heAds, a crank from a 1968-79 style?
    I found some stuff let me know if it will work together, I know the block shown will need work done to it.
