Ford 460 questions

My queston is about the later produced 460 eng, I would like to know if these eng ever came with a factory roller camshaft or not? If the 460 never came with a roller cam, are there any retrofit roller cam kit made?

Re: Ford 460 questions

I might be wrong, but I dont think any 460s were ever roller motors. I am sure kits exist, but why would you want to do that? Roller cams only show an increase in power when you use a cam to radical for a flat tappet lifter, in which case, such cams are high rpm, very peaky, poor torque engines, exactly the opposite of what a truck needs.
