    Well, you said it's missing the comp, so I'm guesing it's F.I.

    In that case I would think it depends on how much of the F.I. is with it.

    If nothing else you could always pop on a new intake and 4bbl carb.



    I'd offer $500. $600 sounds a touch too high.

    Depending on what you are putting it in, why not put a carb on it and forget about the computer.

    $600 for a running 454?? Up here that will sell in a heartbeat. I bought one that was in my 78 Malibu that needed a rebuild for $500. The one that is in the 90 CC I might have sold for $500 which also needs a rebuild. If you need a TBI 454 setup, I got the whole thing......

    Is the TBI on it at least?

    That alone should net a few bucks on the side if you do as suggested, and carb it.

    Just gave $3k for 2 454s. One is "freshly rebuilt with a mild cam" and the other was just pulled from a '79 1 ton CC. Both are complete with brackets. That price included shipping them in.

    Around here you can't find a 454. Every junk yard within 50 miles said no BB. Local machine shop wanted $1750 for a complete core needing rebuilt. It's crazy.

    Hmm, I know a guy who has a 98 454 with 30k. He wants $800 for it :deal:. I would use it, but I get bad enough gas mileage as it is :D Maybe I should buy it and drop it in anyways :thinking:
