454.
had no problems at all really. 3 gear(4l80e) would pull at 55-60 no problem up hills.

the dually will get a CTD some day and the 454 will go in my blazer.

I think the one day I was towing my Blazer with my Avalanche it weighed in at over 14,000 pounds I don't recall exactly what the weight was. I had my beast on a trailer that weighed nearly 2000# I have the 8.1L in my Avalanche and the 4L80E tranny and 3.73 gears. and I think I was doing 70 at about 22-2400 rpms and had no problems.
