What's your realistic budget? What do you intend to do with the Bronco?

Cost could be $1000-$10,000+. Remember to lay a plan and only buy parts once. If you want more inches dont dump a ton of coin into heads you cant get pistons for. You looking for a never open the cover deal or a healthy engine that will need to be looked over every now and then?

what do you mean by decent power? i was hoping for around 400 to 500hp from what i hear 500 is fairly easy to achieve from a 460

You cant just bolt on a set of Al heads and an intake and expect it make 5 bones. Give a dollar amount on the total and you can make a plan. A set of cheap ProComp heads may look cool but for a few more dollars you can get a head that works. Cam and intake choice should be looked at after cubes and RPM are figured. If it was me I stuck good money in the bottom end and swing the shit out of it. With good stuff in the bottom and a mid 4.?? stroke. Next year buy a good set of preped heads to make us of the bottom. If you spend money on top first you cant use it until you need it (RPM or CuIn).

if it helps the budget there's a 460 posted in the parts section for $150.
it may be easy to build up but the 400 hp is easy to get to. the heads make the engine in the case of 460s. they need to breath. if you go with the stock 2.02 heads use stainless valves and 292 In 300 ex with about a .560 lift at the lobe. the best cam is the stock cobra jet cams with the hydraulic lifters(about .490 lift at the lobe). the stock super cobra cam is a solid unit and a pain to keep adjusted in. the com cams folks make a few nice cams for high torque if you want good low end.

make sure to use a early/adjustable timing set. later ones retard the cam timing 8 degres. i have a 466, lunati bracketmaster cam, performer intake, 770 truckavenger,keith black pistons d3ve heads good port job (soon to be either d3ve's with big valves and wicked port work or c9ves with same work) its almost 10 to 1. runs great on good pump gas.
