Mike, Steve advised me to post this here. I know that late model 460s are less desirable than the earlier ones because of head design. How many HP does a stock 460 from a 1987 Clubwagon have? It has a 4-barrel Holley and a C6. What model is this Holley and how many CFM? The owner says that it came standard with the engine. Hope you can help me in this regard. Thanks.

The engine came with a 230HP/365lb torque rating. They aren't bad engines,really,with a cam change you can wake it up. The Holley was standard,like with the 351 HO{210/325}. It is a 600 cfm vacuum secondary,like what you would but over the counter,but came with a two stage power valve. the one I had was a good carb on my 351,but you had to have the specific rebuild kit for it.All the gaskets are basically the same,except the PV. I didn't try a single stage PV,but it may work.

Thanks Mike. One more question please. The C6 came from a column shift vehicle, will any floor shifter for a C6 work? Or will modifications have to be done? Thanks.

That I'm not sure of. You would have to compare the selector shafts. Some pull over,some under. You could get an aftermarket shifter,and then it would work.

Someone suggested that it would be easier if a use an aftermarket shifter with cable. Thanks.
