I drove a buddy's coupe that had an iron 460 punched/stroked to a 508 I think, with an auto behind it.  Headers were massive, but still fit somehow.  The carb was problematic, but for one test drive it worked for me and it flew.  Can't imagine a 588 that's tuned right.

So whats the downside to using the 460 based BBF in this application?

If none, then why isn't this more common?

cause the BBC has a huge aftermarket advantage over the BBF.

cheers, claude



Thats no lie for some reason the BBF was forogtten by the aftermarket don't get me wrong there are some godd parts out there just not as many choices as the BBC or SBF and SBC.

The only down sides I see are weight and parts availibilty. But the upside is you can make big HP with a stock block and low rpms and they will last season after season.

Why would the big block last longer than the small block?

What parts did you need that you could not get?

The stock 460 block is strong...you can make 700 at reasonable rpm and not hurt the block.  Your not going to do that with a stock small block.

Parts availability...just go to any part store and try and find anything for a 460.  They will have to order it.

Even performance parts the selection is way smaller than a comparable Chevy.

Finally got to make a few nitrous passes only using 1 stage of 150 off the trans brake got that stage dialed in with a best pass of 5.53@127 and a 1.27 60ft shifting at 6500rpm. We need to work on the chassis some it is torquing bad off the line and costing us some et in the 60ft.

I only have this video of it leaving on the 150 shot without the wheelie bars.  Luckily he didn't tear it up.
