C-460 cylinder head lightening program

Post  Topgunn1 on February 23rd 2013, 2:40 pm

Does anyone on the site know of someone that has a lightening program for the C-460 heads, my block was done by LSM, but they require 10 sets to write a new program for heads they haven't done yet. Thanks

cost ? $1500 or close to for 2 lbs? Put the driver on a diet! Mind you a set of C460's with .060" taken off the outside would make a set of C460's look billet!

Is funny. Customer of my old boss ran a dirt modified. Had an Olds DRCE engine in it. Of course with all that top heavy weight and HP was a handful out of the corner and not to easy to hookup. We convinced him to switch to a conventional head BBC (just cannot convert some to a Ford Evil or Very Mad ). Lighter weight, better handling, and not as hard a hit out of the turn should make up for not as much HP and save some tires.

He went to town on the block, cut everything not need off, came in pissed that for all his hard work only save a few pounds. Did find some weight saving in the heads, rather the stands for the shaft rocker arms. Removed all the unneeded bits. Think he saved like 10 lbs doing that.

Anyway last I heard he put the DRCE engine back in. So much for weight reduction Laughing

I'd think for an everyday guy, if the cost is 1500 it would be much better spent towards and aluminum block or a lighter crankshaft. IMO

Yes this will be an N/A deal for now, the motor was ran in X275 and ran fairly well at 3200lbs. This was the motor that little counrty was running, it went 5.20 at valdosta on 275's with 3.70 gear. This car will be ran at some of our local races where low 5second runs are very competive and i believe with the weight saving and a dry sump system that i have added my car will be around 2700lb with driver.

I believe in X you must run a cast intake(even on the N/A deal,but I could be wrong), if so you can cut the cast C Intake up a little and loose some weight, while its a heavy intake idk what you might loose. You can trim the middle of the valley tray out(leaving the outsides to use as a frame so to speak) and replace the middle with lighter weight material(thin aluminum sheets,lexan,etc.).

I doubt you will find many people willing to spend $1500 bucks to lighten a set of C heads, there will not likely be enough of a weight saving to justifiy the costs IMO. Like mentioned above do you have an aluminum block?
