    How bad are the 454’s on fuel? Although before doing the spider upgrade in my 98 I was quite used to 10-11 mpg

    I get about 10-12 out of it normally. 8 if I drive like a bat out of hell; and I've gotten as high as 14 babying it and using cruise control over a long distance.

    Same! I'd love to find a decent small block 3/4 ton burb, but I'm also looking for a very specific list of options on it to fit my criteria.

    'Cause I've already got my 454 in my 96 K2500; that and I'd be mildly building the engine in the Burb using GM Performance parts like a '395 Marine cam and such, or drop in an HT383E.

    Damn right! The man was one of those guys, it was actually refreshing talking to him. Especially after my mad dash around town over the last couple days poking my head under and around anything that even remotely could help me get back to work. He was honest and up front about everything and I even got a set of gm 16” polished aluminum wheels all for $3,500
