So i know i've started liek 5 threads to discuss what is going through my head for my next truck. I really hate to see my truck go, but my parents want to get me something with airbags.....so i really want the perfect setup for what i need before i am willing to part with the blazer. Here's what i've recently been mulling over. I really want a 3/4 ton, with decent gas mileage. That leaves me with a 96-99 3/4 ton burb, wiht a diesel, or a 350. Both are rare motors. Plus, when i look at colors and options i want, im practically looking for teh impossible truck. I found a 99 2500 burb with a 454, 48,000 miles, for pretty cheap. Color, options i want. What would it cost to buy a Vortec 350, complete? Im assuming none of the FI stuff from teh 454 will swap to teh 350. Then, what could i get for a used vortec 454 wiht that # of miles? What type of shop would i look for to do this swap, and how much woudl it cost? Short of running across the perfect burb, i think this might pencil in. I like the idea of getting 15-17mpg out of the 350, and i really won't be hauling very heavy trailers. I mainly want the 3/4 ton for the durability of the drivetrain, and the 4l80e trans. THanks guys!
