I purchased for $50.00 a 460/C6 complete running package from a buddy out of his 73 Thunderbird. He decided to go with a 5.4 setup out of a wrecked lighting pickup. I am trying to find out if I should rebuild and store/use for a later project, or just sell it. Either way I would like to know what the engine codes says about it.

The block is Stamped DIVE-6015-AA
The heads are Stamped D3VE-A2A

any info would be appreciated.

The best way is to measure the bore size.

427 is 4.232 in (107.5 mm)

390 is 4.052 in (102.9 mm)

Stroke is the same for both at 3.784 in (96.1 mm)
