Short stroke, huge bore, heck yeah.

They are not priority main oiling and in high performance applications that can be a hurdle, but they are great engines.

It will however probably cost you a ton of money to get them to fit the chevy. Chevy chassis are set up for rear sump pans and all 460s are front or front/center sump. For the cost of adapting you could have two 454s.

But, I'm all for engine swaps. Nothing neater than opening the hood of a car and seeing a really oddball swap under there. I was all set to put a 302W in an 87 cutlass until I moved to a smog area and it was just more headache than it was worth.
