Yeah lots of people have put 460s in foxes. Not too difficult, they make swap kits.

460s can go to 514 cubes easy, make about 600 hp on a mild setup.

351s can go to 427 easy and make 550 hp on a mild setup.

with an aftermarket block 351s will go 454......i think that would be pretty bad ass

460= extremly heavy... i think the 351 would be best all around..weight for power

extremely durable too, a stroked 302 will make the best power to weight, but you are severely limited on how much power you can make.

I think stock block max is 408.

World Man O'War block can go up to 460. No need for BB, unless you want to stroke that...

The maximum sized just depends on the deck height and bore capabilities of that certain block and there are a few different sizes

i posted this before but my buddy and i both have 86 coupes with the same fuel systems, same suspension set ups, both 3 inch exhaust, he's got a mild 460 with a cam , intake and 750 dp, tko 600 and 28 x 9 slicks, 12.40s @ 109 traction issues
my car has a warmed over 351 with a cam , intake and 750 c4 and drag radials and i hook up well and run 11.70s @ 114, i know big blocks can run fast , but imo a 351 based motor ( 408 ) is just better unless you are building an all out drag car

I would go with a small block even if i was building an all out drag car. I wont run another big block again.
