I'd like to see this done myself. Hell, if I had the engine sitting around and didn't need my truck everyday, I'd have it done. Really, it's hard but not impossibly by any means. I have seen it in a way custom 97 before in a 4x4 mag. You'd need to rip out and replace alot of what makes the truck run with custom stuff. I actually think you can mount the engine to a AOD tranny if he's already got one but a c-6 with x-fer case would probably be stronger and more cost effective. Do it buddy, but give the 20 yr old engine a good going over.

I doubt that an AOD will last very long behind a 460. I like the ZF manual idea a lot better.

i think you should go for it. im gonna use a 94 efi 460 sometime next year. probably summer time.
ive been wanting to do this for around six years now ever since i saw it in a 4-wheel drive mag where they did it on a 97 single, short wheel base 4x4 on like some 44's or something

IMPO i want a c-6 auto behind my setup for it will work the best and will last the longest

an aod when built right can handle a stock 460 but thats about it that i've seen so far.
but it wont bolt up to the 460 unless you get the addaptor plates. i personally dont like my aod, i'd go for the zf5.

If you gotta have an automatic, a C6 is really the only answer - but without OD that's going to limit you in a street driven vehicle - unless you could absolutely care less about gas mileage and never take it out on the Interstate and want to go fast.

I am in the process right now myself. I started with setting in a 390 but decided to put in a 460 instead. the 390 fits just fine with plenty of room for headers and the 460 doesnt apear to be as wide.
