I don't think a 460 would even begin to fit in our trucks.

I don't know how these engine bays have changed over the years but I can't imagine there would be much room at all.

The 460 is pretty wide, a lot of things would have to be relocated.

Plenty of guys have swapped the 5.0L into these trucks.

Plus the 460 is very heavy. A suspension upgrade would be in the works as well

I would love to see it though
