    I have my eye on something and wanted to see if anybody could give input, good or bad, about the 1999 Chevrolet 454 engine.

    It's in a dually with an automatic, I don't know the miles yet since I'm just creepin on this deal. :uhoh:

    I had a 98 2500 I thought was cool until I traded it for my 2500 with an 8.1 :D

    A friend of mine has a 2000 C3500 with a 7.4 he has used for work since day one. The damn thing still has plenty of balls and over 200K on it.

    Thanks guys, yeah I know it will eat gas. But I'm not looking for a Prius. :D

    Just wondered if there where any inherent problems with that year engine. I had a 98 3500 but it had a 350, and ate gas. Had a '01 8.1, and it ate gas.

    You're going to stick a 454 in a Prius? That's going to be awesome! :willy:

    IIRC all the GenVI(maybe GenVs as well) big blocks had four bolt mains and one piece rear main seal,a good thing :thumbs:

    Mine has almost 170,000 on it and still runs strong,uses very little oil and runs cool at operating temp even in 100* weather with the A/C blasting.
