I do have a 460 (and 2 429s for that matter) and while i do think it would have quite a bit of power with the c9's i have compared to the d3's its running id rather buy a new setup for the price they want for 385 parts. The way im seeing it I need new pistons to get away from the stock cast ones and the crank may need to be ground/polished etc plus all bearings, resizing the rods etc I might as well spend 3 grand and know exactly what i have. I do like the way the 429 revs and it works great for keeping my wheel speed when im in deep snow but Id like to build something bigger and different. At this point im just looking into my options, though so far the 501 looks the best for the rod ratio and stroke. How good is piston availability for the stroke? If i ever want to overbore would i find a piston made for that bore and stroke fairly easily? thanks
