Hey guys! I'm new to this forum. Not really new to BBFs. I started a foxbody build MANY years ago when SBF strokers were kinda pricey. This is my current combo:

460cid, 10:1 comp (stock bottom)
Comp Xtreme 284/296, 240/246@.050 .584/.588 (hyd-flat)
Edelbrock Performer RPM heads (Ported w/valve job)
Victor Jr. Intake (Port matched, floor/runners blended)
Duraspark distributor (Curved)
Holley Sniper X-Flow 550-540
Fogger NOS (150hp-250hp)
C6 trans, 3k converter
3.73 gears
28 x 9 tire

I haven't totally finished the car. I'm considering pulling the engine for a Coyote/supercharger swap. I like the novelty of the BBF, but the fuel economy (7mpg on the highway) is terrible for cruising. I have a Sniper to replace the 950HP, and was thinking about a Gearvendors.

Do you guys think I'm in "NO MAN'S LAND?" I'd like the finished car to at least run low 10s on NOS, have heat, A/C and be able to go at least 150 miles on a tank. Should I finish the 460 build or put in another car and go Coyote? I'd really appreciate your input! Thanks!

With a Gear Venders and a 15 gallon tank you might make 150 on Fumes in my opinion. The fuel injection will not help much on the highway at cruise with a well tuned Holley.
