monster torque 460?

how do you build a 460 to make horrindous amouts of torque way down low? i read some where someone had one tha made 550 ftlbs at like 3000ish rpms. it doesn't need to rev over 4000 or so. would like low comp, for cheap gas. what kind of combo would i need? thanks

Ooops, I got the Torque / HP labels backwards (wardsback?) in the above thread and it won't let me edit it to correct.

Sorry!

I'm looking to get power like that from my 460..

Anyone know how to ID a cam without tearing the engine apart?

I bought the engine/c6 tranny from a guy taking it out of one sweet 68 stang fastback.

Things I know

1. C8VE Heads, 10.5:1 cr, D1VE block.
2. TCI converter, 2500 stall
3. Edelbrock Torker II intake (single plane)
4. Holley carb, think 750cfm.
5. Nice headers

I 'think' the manifold and converter tell me 2500- up, which sort of matches with the Comp Cams - Ford 429, 460 Xtreme 4x4 X4270H Cam

I just rolled back from the dyno, '77 4x4 with a 460/C6, 4:11's and 33x12.5's. I made 350HP and 500 ft./lbs of torque at the rear wheels. '77 block 60 over, 10.5 milled TRW's on Eagle SIR rods, DOVE C heads ported and larger valves, COMP valvetrain and 294 solid cam, Edelbrock Performer RPM with 1" spacer and 850 Demon. Stan's Tri-y headers with 2.5" dual exhaust through flowmasters. With the low ratio gear set in the tranny the truck really launches and screams to over 6 grand. Not the most sedate vehicle but what a fun toy.

John.

77460,

As a test agains a known value I ran your setup through Destop Dyno. I cam up with the following crank HP/Torque numbers.

RPM HP / Torque
2000 231 / 606
2500 283 / 595
3000 340 / 595
3500 391 / 587
4000 429 / 563
4500 452 / 527
5000 452 / 475
5500 427 / 408
6000 379 / 331

Corrected using a 22% driveline loss that comes out to theoretical rear wheel max numbers of 352 HP and 473 lb-ft torque. Darned close to what you actually made at the dyno! I'm glad to see that the error was an under estimation of actual torque and not the opposite.

Brad

Wow! Amazing how far software has come. Big torque is the answer for launching 5200lbs of truck. Thanks for the numbers Brad.

Are 9:1 or 9.5:1 compression ratios too high for pulling a trailer (travel trailer)? Assuming high torque/RV cam.

Thanks.

Ben

The biggest thing with the D/D's is headflow numbers... the computer will guesstimate close, but with accurate flow numbers, its almost dead on, as for the 9.5:1 pulling a trailer, there should be no problems at all there
