SO you want to put a blown 460 in a reliable road truck. With the blower sticking out of the hood.
Not trying to be a dick but does that sound like something that would be reliable in MI.?

A blower motor can be built to be street friendly if you are smart about it.

Blower motors traditionally run lower compresson pistons. 7 to 1 seems to be the nice spot with street blowers.

There are several companies that offer 460 blower kits in the tune of $4,500-$7,500. Much more expensive than building a chevy.

One popular route to go on blown and tunnel rammed 460 engines is to use twin motorcraft two barrel carbs instead of twin four barrels. This allows some economy, yet they still flow very nicely. A guy I met on the 2000 Hot Rod Magazine Power tour was running a stockish tunnel rammed 460 in a 67 mustang with twin motorcraft two barrels and it would idle all day long in the hot southern sun and get 12mpg on the freeway.

It can be done if you have the dough.
