If the guy wants a similar amount for the motor in the RV then go with that. It has several benefits....

1. it is a 454 so making power is easier due to the larger displacement.

2. You won't need special belt lengths or accessories or pushrods or rod lengths when you rebuild it.

3. Some of those 454's in RV's came with forged cranks.
