I have owned this customized Van Since new. It still is a show van.
Originally the only engine mods were headers, shift kit and 429 timing
After 120K miles the engine was overhauled along with extensive
exterior body work and paint. The shop replaced the timing gears with
the stock. I had a hell of a lot less power. This was about 5 yrs
This past summer I installed Eidelbrock intake manifold , had the
heads shaved 20 thou, Eidelbrock carb and MSD wireset. I am presently
installing a full MSD ignition system. The mods to the manifold and
carb took 4 seconds off the 0-60 It is better than the 429 timing
gear mod.. but I still want to try that timing gear mod back in the
van. For the life of me now, in talking to the local mechanics and
to the local parts store, They have no idea what I am talking about.
Is anyone on here familiar with this mod to the 460 Big Block and
will it work in my new situation?
