Project Twin Turbo 460

I'm currently starting to research my next project out and looking for any input. I'm going to build a Big Block Ford up around 600ci to use twin turbos' and electronic fuel injection. I'm going to put it in a 70 mustang. I'm going to make it streetable, plus take it to the strip from time to time. I wondered if any company made any manifolds for such a thing, or I'd just build my own? What would be the best aftermarket heads for something like that? Also I need to get rid of my shock towers in the engine compartment, who makes a kit for that. ? Thanks in advance.

i would use a set of aftermarket aluminum heads for this motor. as for the exhaust manifolds, contact gale banks engineering, they shold have what you need there. for the front end, rod and custom motorsports has the suspension you need. it is mustang ll based, fairly easy to install, and you can remove the shock towers.

there is plenty of companys that offer a mustang kit look in the ford magazines they do make a victor intake for injetion they are around 700.00 complete you will need some pretty good size turbos to accomodate the cubes i would just use a 460 ci. with turbos theres no need for cubes they make up for it .

I'm building one with a 2 four-barrel blow through. There's a local puller with one just off the dyno that was impressive! He had mildly ported C9AE heads, 2 Garrett T04's & 2 BG custom blow-thru carbs on an Offy T-Ram. With a hydraulic roller (he's limited to under .600 lift) he made 900 HP on racing gas! This was a .030 over 460 (466) with the combustion chambers opened up & dish TRW pistons making about 7.5 to 1 CR. He used 2" shorty headers, upside down & bolted the turbos to them. Sure was a neat looking set-up. Said he had about $10K in it complete.

I have heard of a guy using some old 460 truck manifolds (the ones with the 3" outlets) and flipping them. with a basically stock short block and a big Schwitzer turbo from a Cummins diesel, it supposedly made around 700 RWHP. wow!

Check out this website. The site is kind of old but might give you some insight. This has a twin turbo EFI 460 in a Fairmont.

I personaly would cut down on cost by staying a little lower in the cubes and going with carbs vice injection. Less headcache for such an exotic set-up.

Good luck!

You guys have me thinking again...and that's never good! How about a twin T-3 .63/.60 from a t-bird on a 400? Since 400's are low-rpm engines anyway, the long stroke combined with their low compression would make a great candidate for a budget turbo project. I know where there's a ratty old '74 LTD that would be a great candidate! hmmmm

Yeah, stay with around 460 displacement...600 ci + 14 lbs boost and youŽll have at least 1000 hp without even trying..then try to get that into ground with street tires and a nose heavy Mustang..hey IŽm having serious problems with traction with only 500+ hp and not too nose heavy small block..and the top speed is more than 180 mph.How fast you want to go with your Stang? It will do 200 mph+ even with a 460 + single turbo.
Too much power is not too much , but too much too much power is just too much....
