Before I get into what needs to be done for them to be "nasty", how good are you with custom wiring and whatnot?

Well the issue is the fuel injection system the 460 uses. (ive got a 96 460 truck also). Its not really designed to accept any change so even a throttle body upgrade can screw it up. To do it right you need to start from scratch and adapt a mass air system onto it. Its either a junk yard pull with some long nights with wiring diagrams. Or just buy a kit but that can be 1600 bucks if not more

with a mass air system it can handle changes like a new cam, high flow exhaust and intake. The old system relies on vacuum to make its adjustments to any change in that will throw the system off

Dump the EFI and go back to a Carb setup. Hell the '68 460 in the Lincoln was rated at 365hp and 535tq at 2800 rpm stock.

You want to make some power, bore and stroke it to 557 cu in and put a set of Jon Kaase P-51 heads on it, 10:1 compression, and a good carb setup. You can make 700hp all day long with that setup. He sells a 520 in motor that makes over 800/740 if you want a crate engine.
