95 ford 460 EFI to carb setup

Post  Tennessee Bullitt on June 14th 2012, 8:34 am

What would be a better soultion to a carb swap as far as this goes. Price motorsports has the adapter to bolt a carb to the fulies heads and they also have adapters to bolt any style 460 manifold to the fulie heads. It seems that to run like a weiand stealth and a good carb would be a little better that just bolting on a carb. I am wanting a good cam with monster torq and good power for the dullay.

Good dual plane intake
Like a avenger carb or similar
built cam or shelf grind to work with stock converter like to have a tight LSA
mabe rub on the heads a little

How much lift are you able to get away with on these heads without any valve issues? I also thought of putting in a little stall if the cam needs some.

Or how would it help or hurt the heads if they was matched to a standard 460 manifold, if there was enough eat to grind on? Just thinking about eleminating the adapters if at all possible.

Are you having any problems with your EFI Ernie ?
My 95 460 dually should be road ready in the next week with the camper on it.
Hope I don't have problems and it pulls everything o.k.

No issues, just need to replace gaskets and a oil pump and stuff. Just looking to pep up the truck a little. I could get a computer cam and do a few things but I hate changing things and for certain not having any issues. I know the carb setup will give me more flex in modding with bolt-ons and such.

I see.

I heard the efi 460's deliver better towing power than the carbed 460s.
When I get my '95 running, I'm going to find out how much power that efi 460 has.
I'm going to be pushing alot of air with the slide in camper and the 7000 lb. trailer behind it.

Looking good there Alan. The spec on those motors are 245HP at 4,000 rpms and 400TQ at 2,000 rpms,good but it can be made better. It should run perfect for ya. Hope you enjoy it, I love mine to much, well look I already have some trophies to show for it from US 60 dragway. Very Happy

A Weiand Stealth couldn't be more wrong for your low rpm towing application. The OEM FI intake is much better suited; try the carb adaptor on that. If you want to delve deeper, then re-work the intake manifold runner exits at the intake flange and bowl blend the intake and exhaust bowls.

Thanks Ernie.
If you buy the carb adapter and then do not like it or you mod your engine and don't need it, I will buy it from you.
I have been wanting one of those.

Thanks paul, I have been searching the internet and seen what a very few people talked about doing with fulie motors but never could find any results. What is your opinion on a cam if I am going to keep down low and having a cam with a tight lobe seperation like a 107 or a 108?

Since your into tinkering, why not advance the camshaft a few degrees?

Dave.
