    Swapping 454\'s...

    1987 suburbans 454 engine took a crap. I picked up 454 out of a 1995 suburban for cheap with LOW miles on it. I'll just be swampping everything over from the 1987 motor to the 1995 motor.
    Wondering what the power specs are on the 1987 motor vs. the 1995 motor?

    Anything I should do to the 'new' engine before I put it back in? Cheap upgrades maybe?

    a cam would be a good swap while its out. Not sure the best cam for a TBI 454. Some headers maybe? I don't think power changed between the two years. I could be wrong.

    hmmmmm....how well do 454's pull when they are stock anyways? Never driven one before /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Hmmm...cam swap...how much $$$ we talking and anyone have any recommendations? Something to get me some good low end, but good crusing down the highway power too. Gas mileage isnt gonna be that great, but anything to help out with that?

    BTW, its a 1987 2wd Suburban...
