1990 460 heads what manifold to run for carb?

so my buddy has a 1990 460 with no intake and he is putting it in a 1954 ford f100 and wants to put a 4 barrel carb with an after market intake. he has a intake for a 460 but the ports dont line up on the intake runners. Dose any company make an aftermarket intake that works with the newer centerbolt valve cover heads?

No. 460 EFI heads use a completely separate intake manifold design and port location and nobody makes an carb manifold for one. He will need to swap over to the earlier carbureted heads, or adapt the EFI manifold to work with a carburetor. The EFI heads and intake are not bad for factory pieces, and if he is willing to take the time to adapt it to a carb and port a little it should be a strong runner.

The 90 model 460s had a -7 cc valve relief on the pistons, and the best thing would be to find some smogger D3VE (73-86) heads and bolt them on. That should give him about 9.4:1 compression and allow him to run on pump gas. The D3 heads are the cheapest and most widely available 460 head, and with a decent port on the exhaust side they will wake that engine up. Have your buddy visit www.reincarnation-automotive.com and pay the 25 bucks for membership, it has step by step instructions and pictures of how to port 460 heads without fucking them up. It also has good information on the fuel injection engines as well.
