well i have a 79 f1oo 2wd that i drive while i'm fixing my toyota, after the toy is fix i want to drop in a big block. whats the biggest motor that will drop right in? it has a 302 right now and i figure a 351 would be the biggest, right? how hard would it be to drop in like a 390? take in to consideration thats its a beater kinda and i plan on just using a used motor.

thanks Steve

if you get a 460 your going to need a new transmission. id go for a 351 Windsor as they are very common and will bolt right up to your transmission. if you get a 390 then you would need a different transmission also.
