Its me again im only 17 but ive been workin on cars sence i was 14 but how hard is it to shoe horn a 429/460 in a 71 torino thats a 302 car from factory. I no the tranny will have to go thats a given. What all has to be changed in order to fit the 460 in it. Ive heard the whole shock tower must be changed to one from a bb car and ive heard hardly anything and my problem is its gettin cold and i have an unheated shop. So I dont wana spend any more time in the cold if i dont have too. I no the oil pan will have to be changed to a dual sump pan (i think thats wut its called). Mainly wut has to be done to the engine bay to fit it in thanks for the help guys. Keep real and fast, peace

A 460 will fit into the 70/71 TORINO and 71/73 MUSTANG as the TORINO and the 71 MUSTANG were factory assembly with the 429. Same aprons. Frame mounts should be the same as a 302.
