I have a 460 in my 81. It'll light the tires up. The 460 is a good truck engine, but not limited to that.

The only reason I would put the 351M in my truck would be to haul it away.

My 79 F-250 460 will smoke them with no problems. The aftermarket is not there for the 351-400 engine.

Mine is a 73 460 out of a Lincoln and it's nothing special. It's 30 over stock rebuild, with a Performer intake, but that's it. I'm happy with it.

I had a basically stock 69 429 thunderjet in my 82 F-100.The engine came out of a 69 LTD and I was able to use the engine, transmission,power steering pump,and even the shift linkage.If I remember correctly I think I may have even used the driveshaft.Had to convert the engine to a rear sump oil pan and matching oil pump.I ran heddman headers and had a Holley 750 on it.It worked great and got better mileage than the baffed 302 that came in the truck
