429 thunderjet manifold to 460

Post  james perrine on January 18th 2013, 5:17 am

I bought a 1979 f150 lariat recently and I'm going to get rid of the 4bbl holley manifold and put a 1970 2bbl carter 2150 in it's place.
I will add further posts as I work on this project.
If anyone wishes to contribute their knowledge to my attempt, it would be more than welcome.
I am fortunate to have found this forum and can use any help I can get.

get ready to use more gas cuz it doesn't work that way, the 4 barrel will let air by the back barrels and help with gas mileage, but if you want to do it go ahead and have fun...460s are not known for great gas mileage...

What is your reason for wanting a 2bbl on this engine?
