I am going to assume it was bored also. I would like to know why they used stock 460 heads if they bored and stroked it.
Not everyone is on the aluminum aftermarket head bandwagon. Nothing wrong with using Ford iron heads… the 460 heads may be ported but you can't tell until you start unbolting stuff to check...
