I have a 460 that I would like to drop into the 76 Stang that I bought from GT350. Anyone here ever do one, know of any swap kits, headers that will work, ect.? Any advice would be great. Thanks Dave

I've seen a few done that way.. I don't have info on who makes a kit, but you have to chop the poo out of the inner fenders.. I had a 351w in mine and to me its not worth the trouble.. Sell the 460 and build a stroked 302.. Much easier... Just my $.02

Could be fun, but the engine will weigh more than the front of the car. Great for going in a straight line. Turning?? I wonder what the alignment is like for that.

It's only going straight (hopefully), If you saw the tires going up into the back of it, you'd see why I'm not worried about turning or weight. I think you'll like it. It'll be getting a Pro Series 4-Link from S&W Race Cars this winter. If I measured right, it should all fit within the stock body and go: tire, 4-link, pumpkin, 4-link, tire. With hardley any space inbetween any of it. My 06 probably won't see to much more track time, so I'm going to build the 76 I bought from GT350, into a full race. I have a 460 boarded and stroked, with about 700hp (on spray) sitting in my garage. I'm going to take this one to the track and beat the P*** out of it until something breaks. Then I'm going to break it again. This is all about having fun. Dave

Good gosh, that's going to be an awful tight fit, I thought it was tight with a smog 302 on my dad's 77!!
Definitely post pictures of this throughout the process, or just build a 347 stroker or something of the sort to put in there instead, more than likely much cheaper and much easier to do.

Sounds like a long winter project.
