Learn to make incredible horsepower from Ford’s most powerful big-block engine design.
In Ford 429/460 Engines: How to Build Max-Performance, written by Ford expert Jim Smart, aspects of performance building are covered, including engine history and design, induction systems, cylinder heads, the valvetrain, camshaft selection, the engine block, and rotating assemblies. The best options, optimal parts matching, aftermarket versus factory parts, budget levels, and build levels are also examined. The 429/460 engines are a good platform for stroking, so that is covered here as well.
Includes 355 color photos and charts. Whether you want to build a torque-monster engine for your off-road F-150, a better-preforming version of a 1970s-era smog motor for your luxury Lincoln, or an all-out high-horsepower mill for your muscle car, this book is a welcome addition to your performance library.
Covers 1968-1998 Ford "Lima" big block 385-series engines with 429 and 460 displacements.
