Hello all, As the title states, looking to get some info. Possible 460 build comming up. I have a 92 F250 with an EFI 460 in it. Trucks not in to bad a shape, got a little rust but its straight. I honestly bought the truck because it was cheap. I needed a pickup to get me by for a while. Was shopping for a low budget ranger or f150 when I came across a bigblock truck for 700 bucks. Well, I couldnt help myself. The truck now has 200 on it and is getting pretty beat down. Oil foul on #8 plug. Runs ok with nonfowler but starting to smoke in the mid rpm range. I was figuring on a rebuild just comming a little sooner than I thought.

After some reading on the forums I am figuring out real quick that I have a lot to learn. Block type, head type, efi limitations etc.etc... What I really need to know is how to figure out exactly what my motor is, or has in it. I am very certain it is all stock from the factory. Any links or methods of identification would be great. I do also have a hard time finding a lot of EFI builds. Good reading is always accepted.

I dont have wild goals of a crazy 1000 hp drag truck with my 6500 pound truck. Just the idea of since I got to pull this big ole beast out of there, might as well do a little upgrading. What I really want is a big ole torqe monster sleeper. Just blow out a couple honduhhhs. Basic first thoughts starts with a middle of the road cam. Thinking 270-280 duration 500- 550 lift, cam, lifter, springs, timing set. Heads will be a self done mild port job, gasket match, deburr, and blending. Intake will be a good question, no clue what to do there. I want to hang with stock efi, perhaps mild mods, run on pump gas. No high compresion. Just a street truck sleeper with a little thump thump. Might even find a 100-125 shot on it for a couple track passes.

All sugestions and advise will be nice. Lots of links ands education is what I need. Thanks

Well, you cant win them all, but you can try. Besides, on the street. I will take a bigblock 500 hp 6500 pound truck over a front wheel drive 9 out of ten times. You just cant 60 ft a front wheel drive on street tires.

Dont really like rice. It should just be disposed of. Lol

So can anyone help with the question of identification? What block, heads, tranny, etc stuff like that I have. I see a lot of casting quotes on here and want to figure out what I have so I can get to lernin!

The fuelie heads are actually good heads with plenty of porting potential. The problem with the ford truck fuel inj. is it is speed density calibrated instead of a mass air flow sensor.
Difference being sd is VERY limited on what mods you can do to the induction combination. If you do some research, you can learn how to convert to Mass air and open up all kinds of options. But in stock form, the SD fuel injection will not work with the cam range you are thinking of. You might want to consider switching to a carb and looking at the companies that make computers that let you switch to a carb'd engine while keeping the E4OD trans.
