How much horsepower does a Ford F250 460 engine have? Casey 10-19-07  
I have a Ford F250 truck with a 460 7.5 liter fuel injected engine and I'm trying to figure out how much horsepower I have. Does anyone know how my V8 engine compares to a V10 Ford?

The 1990 through 1996 Ford XL regular cab pickup with 7.5/460 engine has 245 to 250 hp. 400 to 410# torque.

Hi there, i just bought a 1995 f250 with a 460 motor, what are your views on the this truck for plowing snow? will it burn a lot of gas ?
Re: How much horsepower does a Ford F250 460 engine have? Mark O. 10-19-07  
Chilton's and Motor Manuals have spec's on the different engines.

The short answer is the V-10 is very similar in HP and torque ratings to the 460.

The difference is where the engines make their power. The V-10 needs to be really turning to get the max performance where the 460 tends to get the max when grunting low.

In other words, the 460 will launch faster and then run out of steam about the time the V-10 will be catching up. By the time both reach the top of the hill they will be pretty much neck and neck.

And neither one likes to pass a gas station.

Re: How much horsepower does a Ford F250 460 engine have? chris johnson 10-30-08  
It really depends on what it has done to it. i had a 93 that was pushing 340 horse buy just hollowing out the catalytic converter and a straight pipe exhaust. i have an 87 with the 460 thats carbureted and thats get close to 350. but horse isn't what matters, its torque that matters. my 87 puts out more torque than a stock powerstroke diesel. and the only thing i changed was to put on exhaust. true duals all the way back through glasspack mufflers.

I have a 94 f250 7.5L i want to put true duels on it what do i do about the oxygen sensor?
Re: How much horsepower does a Ford F250 460 engine have? john 5-21-14  
I got an 88 edition 460. Shit can the cacalytic converter and replace it with a 24-27" glass pack. Yet note where your smog lines are. Drill or tap the glass pack for the smog... I did that and I made one hell of a.difference in my take off, pulling, and speed.. next is a k&n cold air intake kit... no Chevy can match mu stock 460 already

The stock power level has been quoted. For fuel efficiency while plowing, there are better engine combinations; however, you would benefit from small-chamber aluminum heads and a compression ratio between 9.50:1 and 9.80:1. You could go plenty higher with aluminum heads, but then you would be making more power than you can use, plus this is a good compression ratio range for low-rpm fuel economy. With a decent (short duration, moderate lift) camshaft, you'll make all the power you can use and it will be available at the rpm where you drive and work.

As an alternative, you could use an aluminum-head 351M or 400 (takes a little weight off the front axle, but not much: the blocks are almost the same size). Between these and the 460, the 351M will give best fuel economy but will need a little steeper gear than the 460 because it has 108-or-so fewer cubic inches. It will make WAY plenty of torque with the right setup.

Re: How much horsepower does a Ford F250 460 engine have? Tom 10-27-08  
Your '95 has a ton of torque, great for plowing. A super cab is better than a regular cab, and a crew is the best. You want a lot of mass for plowing. Your truck will burn a lot of gas just turning it on, so you'll use TONS plowing. Plan accordingly. I live in the mountains above San Bernardino and I get maybe 6 mpg around town. Freeway driving is a different thing. I get 11 mpg with a full load and the AC on, regardless of speed. So enjoy. The 460 is a workhorse with a big thirst. Fill both tanks and a couple of cans too. You'll be amazed just how fast that gas goes away. Have fun!

Re: need help, my speedo and odometer Tye Larson 7-28-14  
I had a similair problem right after I bought my 94 f250 460, my speedo and odo stopped working and it was shifting hard. Turns out it was a fuse in my IN CAB fuse box. So I went and replaced ALL my fuses in the cab and in the engine compartment. A little over kill but better safe than sorry.
Re: need help, my speedo and odometer Jack 6-9-14  
Hey, not sure, but on my buddy's f150, a 1992, the speedomenter and odometer went out, like your truck. Tried everything and just turned out to be a small fuse at the top center of the in cab fuse panel. replaced it and same thing happened again so put in a slightly higher amp fuse. Now it hasn't happened since.
