Do you think a basicly stock 454 is a good choice ?? Once I get the 454 part of me wants to build a mega monster, but another part of me thinks a stock 454 will be more then pleanty for no more then I'll use ut for. I will do a rebuild on it I do want to raise the compression to appoximently 9.5 to 1. , a Comp Cams X-tream 4X4 cam, a good intake and carb, and TRI-Y's. But still, part of me wants too go full out, but I really think that basicly stock (Mods I listed) might be better (More reliable). I'm just thinking out load, hell, I haven't even got the 454 yet.
