351c Or 460??

My 79 Ranchero's 351m engine just bit the dust, And im done chaising problems with that engine.
I have 2 spair blocks that ive gotten from other builds. A 351c stroked to 408, and a 460 stroked to a 501.

Anyone have any ideas what would be better for my Ranchero, she weighs ALOT and ive heard that the 460 will be better cause of the tq, but theres alot of people out there that like the 351c..

Hi,
The least of your worries is enough torque from either
of these engines to launch that car, it just comes down
to a personal choice for you.

Since the 351M and the 460 have the same bellhousing, I would use the 460 unless you want to get another tranny/bellhousing. The C uses a typical SB pattern. If you have an auto( most likely) you would need another trans and smallblock C6s aren't as plentiful as the C6 that came in it. If it has a manual, the bellhousing will need changed and probably the tranny as well to fit a 351C. The 460 will bolt right to what ever is in it.
