ANYTHING can be made to fit..... just ask Rod Hadfield.......

the short answer is no, the 460 wont go into an EL and be street legal without a LOT of time, effort, and considerable amounts of cash.....

Good thing this is posted in the 6cyl section or id never have found it!

But yeah the answer is no, can be done but for the same price you could be smarter and get a much better result is a newer engine.

460's were still produced up untill the late 90's to fit in the bigger F trucks (F 350 and F 650). The later engines have EFI. If you can find one of those then I don't see why its impossible to do the conversion legally.

Why go that route, World make a 351 stroked to 460. It is the same deminsions as a 351W and would sit nicely in there. If you didtnt tell anyone, you could register it as a 351. The NSW RTA formula for engine size to weight works out i can legally run a 480cube motor in my fairmont for the weight.

The rod/strpoke ratio in that thing would be bloody awfull to say the least. You'd be pretty lucky to get 50,000kms out of that thing without flogging it.
