460 with dove head need advice

Post  ragleone on January 3rd 2016, 7:57 pm

I am new here on the site and new to big block fords. I am building a drag car . Here is what I have 460 30 over, stock crank, stock rods ARP bolts, forged flat top pistons the bottom end is done. Heads are Dove. I have not done anything to them I know they need porting but what valve size? what cam? I would like to run a solid tappet ? what intake?  Would like to make 500 hp or I am way off?

Leave the Victor manifold runners alone; just square-off the front and rear of the Dominator plenum and round the sharp edges.
Port MATCH the D0VE head intake ports at the flange to the manifold port locations..

Doing these makes a work of difference and with the right cam, you'd be surprised what that motor will make Twisted Evil
