How much HP from a DOVE-C head on a 466 ?

Post  whitefield on November 5th 2012, 10:27 am

I started searching this and got tired of looking ,so decided to ask!
What is the most hp that has been made with these heads on a 13.5:1 compression 466 with good internals ?
I am trying to get an Idea of how much money and where I want to go with this engine. Thanks

I think there are several builders on this site that have done truck pull engines with DOVE heads that make serious power. I would bet that if the parts were properly matched one could get to 700 or possibly more HP.

On 460 ( yes stock bore) ,Dove heads stock stroke, solid cam,vic intake ,1050 carb(4500 dom) swap headers for a fox body@3000 have had the cars run 10.20s to 9.90s

this engine made around 600 to the wheels,most of the tests were at 1500 to 1800 feet of air


I should probably put this in the proven build section

3000 lb, 466, flat top, flat tappet cam. C4, 4.10 gear, 10.35 @ 135 mph, 3500 conv. (too tight needed 5000) 60 ft 1.5's should have been 1.30 60's. Heads ported but not a very good job, 2.190 valve.

Yes I do and if I remember it went 6.50 at the valley the last time I saw it run.
I would like to keep these heads add good rods,lighter pistons, solid roller cam, vic intake, and a 1050cfm carb. let me know if you guys think that it will be worth it. I would like to run as much of this engines parts as possible to cut down on cost. If that is possible!

About 6 years ago I did a .060 over (472) D0VE headed deal for a puller, compression was closer to 14 to 1. Using a Pretty big C&S Dominator, Victor intake running on VP113. Just broke 750 around 7300 I believe. Heads were good, but could've been better.

Update

Post  whitefield on May 20th 2014, 7:05 am

I got the old fairlane running, but made some changes . ! I changed from the stealth intake to a Vic. 460 intake . Changed from the c4 to the c6 , and changed from 3500 stall to 4500 stall speed converter.

Do you think these changes are for the better ?

my old combo ran a best of 10.57 at 128mph , it was a 472'' with ported c8 heads, stealth intake, 850 holley and the old heavy trw dish pistons #2404 , small flat hyd cam (comp 292) and a tci 11' converter that I couldn't foot brake over 1500 , the springs on the heads were comp 926 single that sat for over 10 years without the rockers backed off , and the c6 I pulled from a old box van had some good flair to it, all in all I think it did ok for what it was , weight was 2770 with me and 3.90 gears on a 28x10 slick.
