With a choice, build the 460. They are the same engines
except for the stroke. The 429 can be upgraded to a 460 by
changing the crank and pistons.. Rebuild cost won't be
noticeably different. Performancewise, the 429 is a high
revver compared to the 460 with less torque. The 460 has
much more torque and gets it quicker which is what you need
for a truck. You won't notice much difference in fuel
consumption. They both need copious quantities - you may as
well have the power. Lastly, the 429 was never used in
trucks except for the Ranchero. The 460 is just plain
easier to find since they were used right up through about
the 1997 model year in trucks.
