I'd do the opposite. The 049 heads on the 454 means torque monster. Great for the truck, and the RPM heads on the 383 might be a little high-strung for the truck. 383 in the 'velle, 454 in the truck.

Whichever one you are going to pound on, put the 454 in that.

The 454 with 049 heads will be faster in the chevelle than the 383.
