But i have another question...would it be cheaper the build my 393 storker motor...with the supercahger and the trick flow heads and the whole 9 yards?...or would it be cheaper to buy some nice aluminum heads for the 460 and a new intake and all the stuff to put it in my stang?

The 460 set up with iron or aluminum heads, a good C-6 tranny, some gear, a 75 shot and some fat sticky tires should prove a good low 11 sec ride. I've seen it done. My buddy was one of the first in Austin to run the big block/coupe combo and killed everyone on the street. T

However the parts are more difficult to come by and the good ole 302 has proven itself time and time again.

windsor would be easy to do and is a proven way but it doesnt have the shock value as the big block I think it would be cool to take the road less traveled cause theres no replacement for displacement but I would only do that if I could justify the cost
