BBF swapped 82GT

I've had a 460 in this car since 2013. It's been a running and driving project since. I just recently made a few runs at the local drag strip to get a feel for the suspension set up and tune. Right off the trailer the car ran a 10.70 @ 129 mph, along with 2 other runs in the 10.70's to back up the first run. When I get it back to the track next season, the trans brake will be used and the shift points will be raised. It's a fun littl street car!

Awesome car! I've been wanting to do a 460 motor in one of my foxes for a while, but decided on a 408W stroker simply because I already had a bunch of compatible parts. Can we get specs on the motor? Curious if you're running the iron heads or aftermarket.
