hmmm now that you mentioned it, there were a ton of the later gen silverados in the yard. I'll look up when they started using roller cams and vortecs. The yard is full of many more 90+ vehicles then earlier. There is also one small yard locally besides the main one I looked at, I will check there this week for a 400 also. Thanks for the info guys.
