600hp 460 with 11.5 compression possible?

Is 600hp possible from a 460 running 11.5 compression and naturally aspirated. If so how?

1.3 horsepower per cubic inch is not out of the question with GOOD BASIC engine prep and the correct parts.

and if thats a problem, just make it a 545" motor, and your task is all the easier......
thats only 1.1hp/cu", and thats really not difficult at all.

Would 600hp with 11.5 compression in a 460 be possible without stroking the motor and naturally aspirated?

Yes. It's possible to build 600HP from an 11.5:1 460. It's even possible to do it with just ported DOVE heads. There's an 11 second F150 from Alberta that makes 620 HP on the dyno with 11.4 to 1 and fully ported DOVE heads. Roller cams are even totally neccesary. Ultradyne has a 260-267 degree flat tappet solid with .657-.661 lift that they claim is good for over 600HP from a 460. You need a minimum of 850 CFM, (950 would be better) a Stealth, Blue Thunder/FPP/Probe, or Victor, intake, minimum 1 7/8" headers, either open or with a 3 inch or bigger, no compromise race style exhaust, and a 3800+ stall, if you'll be using an automatic.
