64 Galaxie - 390 or 460

Hello,

My friend has a 1964 Galaxie and he's debating on putting a 460 in it or leaving the 390... If he leaves the 390, he's going to put the 460 in his mustang.... I'm not sure what he's really looking for but I think he's wanting something that has good acceleration and lots of torque on tap. The 390 would rev better than the 460 right? He just wants some general opinions. thanks.

-Jason

Re: 64 Galaxie - 390 or 460

stick with the 390 , the 4 barrel version made 330 horse power straight out of the factory and with a little tweeking can be made into a real performer ,
you will also save on the extra work like mounts ect
