Don’t forget to check the Ford offerings if you’re interested in frame-twisting torque. If the valve covers have seven bolts each, then it’s gotta be a 429 or a 460. However, the only real way to tell the difference is to yank the pan and check the crank casting numbers since Ford used the same block to build both, just plan on visiting www.summitracing.com for a 4.30-inch stroker crank to turn either into a 514-cube beast.
