Hey all, Well, I am trying to gather parts for a new motor, as my current engine has 150K on it, and I can not deceide should I keep the 350ci sbc or upgrade to a 454ci bbc. I am planning on about 400hp-425hp and 450ish torque. These numbers can be made fairly easily with either engine. My other plans for the truck are as follows: SM465 transmission / NP205 transferrcase, upgrade to a Dana 60 front/ 14 bff rear with 4.56 gears and a locker in the rear, use 37" or 38" tires, 2" EZ-Ride lift kit with the fender trimming I have already done. Planned usage is a daily driver and weekend trail explorer, mostly on "green" or "Blue" rated trails in the Colorado / Wyoming regions, as well as doing the "OUTLAW TRAIL", as described in the last few issues of OFFROAD magazine, and other such trails. I want to keep the truck as strong, and reliable, as possable, so I want to go with trail proven parts...no new fancey stuff that MIGHT break on the trail. Any other changes you might recomend will be welcomed and considered... Thanks in advance to all who reply.
