Hey all, this is not for a chevelle although that is my dream car. I have some major problems with my 350 that is currently in my 85 k series chevy truck ever since I let it sit while I was deployed it seems. I wanted to wait until I left the Army to get a bigger engine but instead of spending over $2000 to get an old engine partially repaired or more time than I want to spend, I figure might as well just replace the engine now. I always wanted a 454 because my uncle wanted one when we bought the truck but everyone seems to put that down. I'd like a budget of $7000 for everything but could do $10000.I'm really trying to figure out what type of engine to get in that range and where to get it and would like to get a decent amount of horsepower. Does anyone have any helpful suggestions?
