460 EFI : Engine Swaps
Swap in a 460 that is already fuel injected
You can swap in a complete factory EFI 460 engine from a 1988-1997. If you already have a 460 that is still good you can take the heads and intake from the 88-97 and put them on any 460 engine. A 460 will even bolt up to the same bellhousing that a 351M or 400 will. Is it time to rebuild your 460 or Modified engine, or are you simply ready to ditch your carburetor and ignition system? Even if you’re just looking to add better fuel economy and power to your vehicle, an engine swap can be done in a day or two.
From there just send us the harness and ECU from the fuel injected truck, and we will convert it to our full stand-alone system. If you are missing the harness or ECU we keep them in stock also.
If you want to make even more power install the new low-profile throttle body kit and also our performance upgrade Intake. Read more about them below.
Flowkooler - High Flow Water Pumps
Simply put, a stock volume water pump falls sadly short on a stock 460 powered truck. If you do any towing or have increased the power of your engine you will need help to move that massive amount of coolant faster. Your Ford engine and the ECU needs to stay within a specific temperature range to operate correctly. Too cold and you waste fuel, get too hot and the ECU leans the air fuel curve and overheats the engine even further. We searched high and low for a pump that actually worked with the stock radiator tubes, pump shaft, and fan bolt pattern. We were thrilled to find Flowkooler water pumps. But before we offered or recommended any part to anyone we thoroughly test everything first. We installed a few on our built up engines we were installing. What we found was this pump always held the temperature much much closer to the thermostat rating than you could ever expect out of a stock water pump.
- Precision cast iron housing to match year and application
- CNC machined billet impeller which is larger and has a higher vane count
- Tighter impeller to casting tolerances
- More efficient port design
- Much better flow from idle to rev limit than stock
- Type II Class II military grade surface coating for protection against corrosion of aluminum impeller
- Backing plate to water pump gasket, with a shim gasket (if needed for spacing)
We have a pallet of these headed our way. Pre-order to have one shipped to you the first part of May.

Purchase an ECU from our stock
We hand select ECUs and keep them in stock ready to go. Each one is installed and tested to confirm the best air/fuel parameters and timing curves. Which ensure these ECUs will support every engine from mild to wild flawlessly.
Purchase a harness from our stock
We keep a supply of wiring harnesses in stock. If you don’t get one when you found your EFI engine, we can use one of ours.
**These have already been cut for the stand-alone conversion service, and are not intended for a replacement harness for your 80’s or 90’s truck.**
Low Profile Throttle Bodies for the 7.5 liter 460
** DOES NOT WORK WITH MAF (Mass Air Flow trucks) **
SPEED DENSITY HAVE 2 INTAKE TUBES CONNECTED TO THE AIR FILTER BOX
By swapping to this throttle body, you will get better throttle response, increased horsepower, increased torque, and best of all it will improve your mpg’s. Your engine will come to life and perform like the beast it truly is. This throttle body improved our 0-60 times by 2 full seconds. We did 12 runs with the original throttle body and this one just to confirm it. Our 1995 crew cab long bed with a 460 / C6 auto picked up 2-3 mpg’s.
Included with this kit:
- Holley low profile throttle body, throttle cable and all needed sensors
- Throttle cable housing, inner-cable, and needed fittings for throttle and cruise control
- Idle air bypass, pigtail and tube
- Throttle position sensor and pigtail
- 5/8″ tubing and elbow for driver side breather port
- 14″ Air Filter Base (we drill and install a grommet for the IAC)
- 1″ air filter spacer (makes the install easier with more room over the fuel rails)
- MAP sensor and fuel pressure regulator vacuum tubing
- 3/8″ NPT plug for the intake runner #5 (when needed)
- ** Purchase a washable complete air Filter kit separately **
Spare TPS and IAC
Would you like to have a backup Throttle Position Sensor and Idle Air Control Valve. In this day and age of horrendous delays this way you can carry a set of our tried and true backups.

Performance Modified Intake
We are proud to offer the only performance upgrade intake for 1988-1997 460’s. Whether you have built up your 460 or wanting more out of your stock motor letting it breath is always the answer to more horsepower and torque. Having seen the drastic performance increase with ported and balanced single plane manifolds paired with multi-port efi we had to give it a shot. The result was an instant and undeniably increase in power. Starting with Ford’s factory intake we start by cutting the stair-stepped bottom out. From there we remove all the internal passages. They are cut back into a balanced much short length. The air no longer has to get drawn through long runners that make sharp 90 degree turns. Instead each cylinder can now easily draw the air it needs to make the power a 460 is capable of. The easiest way to describe the difference is, instead of downshifting just lay into the throttle and watch the speedo climb. As always, we did 12 time trial pulls before and after the intake. The difference was 1.75 seconds difference in 0-60 in the pictured blue and white 9000 lb. Monster. Everyone who has gone for a ride has said they all felt a huge difference. As the driver it feels like I just unhooked the flatbed trailer.
Depending on how quickly you need your new intake, there are two purchasing options:
Option 1: We don’t charge a core charge. You send us your intake for this service, and we verify that it’s usable. If it is, we send your new intake out the same day. Price includes S+H on delivery of your new intake.
Option 2: If you need your new intake faster, pre-pay the refundable core charge of $200. We will immediately ship your performance modified intake, simply send us your old one. Once we receive your intake in usable condition we refund the core charge fee.
460 EFI Heads to Carbureted Headers Adaptors
Instead of spending a lot of money on swap headers, you can run 460 headers for your year and application with our adaptor plates. These are CNC water jet cut from 3/16″ thick steel, and will allow you to bolt pre-EFI headers to the 460 EFI heads. You will need to pick up EFI gaskets and carbureted gaskets of your choosing.
SUM-K3500 Cam and Lifter Kit for Ford EFI 460 Pre Broken In by Cam Research
With all of the camshaft failure problems of late we learned to send all of our cams to Cam Research first. Using their patented Cam King machine, they break in the cams for us on their machine so we don’t have to worry about loosing a lobe or lifter, and neither will you. We have run thousand of these in the EFI 460, and it is a great upgrade. Rarely do you have to change valve springs with this cam. 282/292 duration, .486/.512 Lift, 112 LSA – has shown to be a great improvement in horsepower, torque, and fuel efficiency. All while being perfectly compatible with the speed density 460 ECU. We recommend checking your valve springs, but we have never had a problem with factory valve springs in good condition. Save yourself the shipping costs and time delay as we carry a stock of these, pre broken in and ready to ship.

Harland Sharp 7.5 Pedestal Mount Roller Rockers
- 16 adjustable roller rockers, pedestal feet and bolts
1974 to 1997 Ford 7.5 460 V8
for spring pressures up to 350 lbs (enough for a roller cam with .600 lift)
Adjustable rocker set
- These roller rockers are designed to be a replacement for the factory rocker arm. Simply remove the factory rockers and replace them with your new Harland Sharp roller rockers. Simply turn and set the pushrod adjuster to set preload. We recommend always checking for head & valve cover clearance and proper lifter preload.
Bullet-Proof Motor Mount Kits + Frame Perches
After having every motor mount we have purchased fail we decided to make our own. These are a fully caged polyurethane motor mount kits. They hold the engine absolutely stable but won’t vibrate you to death. They will handle high horsepower engines but are daily driver friendly. Ours are built at zero degrees with a stock nose up engine. Many other companies are not. Each of our mount kits are made of DOM tubing, polyurethane bushings, plate steel and grade-8 hardware. A pro-rated warranty is laughable. Simply put if these ever fail or wear out we replace them free of charge.
