Its coming out of a 1989 Chevy Suburban.
Its got all the smog equipment and so forth.
So my question is:
Am I able to put this motor into my chevelle? If I get a after market manifold, headers etc...Can I bare this motor down and will it run correctly?
Any info would be helpful.
yes you can strip this 454 of all the smog crap.
add a carb intake, and distributor, (if roller cam, use melonized gear)
and drop it in your a body.
