$195/pr over at Perogie Enterprises.  You can probably find cheaper in a U-Wrench-It yard.

It depends on the engineering revision. If they are mid-70's then they are likely D3VE heads which are dime-a-dozen and used on 1973-1985 460's.  We charge $125/pr for cleaned and magged D3VE castings. Other people who do head swaps or engine rebuilds might give away fresh take-offs that they have sitting around.

Earlier castings, such as C8VE, C9VE, and D0VE heads hold greater value--we have seen them sell for $400 on eBay for D0VE take-offs.

That's a surprise, even with some going for $400.  I thought everything for big blocks was crazy expensive.

rebuilding a 460 with OEM stock parts is not an expensive proposition.  unless it is going to be your daily driver. then the price of gas @ 9 - 11 mpg is a killer.

when you start building a 460 with aluminum heads, stroker kits, and all the go faster parts, that is when thing get slightly more expensive than building a SBF.

i've got a couple sets of D3 heads which may be worth more as steel scrap than i can get on craigs list.  here in tucson, you might be able to give away your BBF stock parts, but few people want to pay for them.

cheers, claude

Cool, maybe I'll go that route with my F100.  Although, I've always liked the idea of sticking with the 352 that's in it.

In today's performance engine arena, I'd say that the 385 Series BBF has an excellent "horsepower-to-dollars" ratio, especially when massaging the OEM parts.

Building up an FE Series BBF, on the other hand, has a relatively poor "horsepower-to-dollars" ratio. If that's what you've been looking into then I can understand why you'd think they are expensive to build.

Thanks Paul.

I still have a lot to learn about my '66 352.  Cost aside it seems like a nice setup for a high revving engine.  Whatever I do to it won't be a max effort deal.  I'd like to have a little more umph and be able to drive my old truck around.

Bill Heinson had some success running a 352 in the 70s.  I'm not old enough to know that first hand, but I've read his posts over on FordFE.com.  He guessed 460-470HP in a car weighing 3950.

Quote from: Bill Heinson
We used to spin the engine 8600 on the starting line and shift it at 7400. It ran a best of 11.61 at 111 MPH.

EDIT:  Corrected myself.
