I think that as delivered, the 460 would perform better on the street and track, except for the high rpm area where the 429 might outperform it (over 6000 rpm).

Stroke either motor to 500 cubic inches (4.14 stroker kit w/.030 overbore pistons) and use the 429 CJ heads and you ought to get your 11 seconds no problem.
