I own a stock 94 4x4 suburban with a factory 454 and a 4speed automatic. Since I live in a high elavation(6000 ft) I'm lacking the horsepower I need to pull my 24 ft.enclosed trailer in the hills. My question is what would be the easiest way to pick up some horsepower without spending a small fortune.

I'm not much of a big block fanatic but If it was mine I would look towards exhaust & air filter...then a chip. Also some rocker arms. I think the 1.8 ratio would really pick up some serious* power but I did a quick search and found these 1.7s at a really good price:

I do not know if you need special rockers for your year, I'd ask a BB specialist.
Maybe there is a BB guy in the room that can give you some advice.

The biggest bang for the buck would be a set of 1.8 rockers.

remove that corregated intake tubing, and the intake resonator. I did that with a KN and it has a little more throttle response and a nice growl at the intake.:)

I think edelbrock or someone sells an intake manifold for TBI GM engines. I'd do headers first though, log exh. manifolds are pitiful.

Suburban

We did our 95 fairly simple. Flowmaster Dual Exhaust, K&N air filter, reprogrammed the ECM more for towing and it was like a new vehicle. Man, that thing would pull anything. Our 99 Tahoe feels like a V-6 compared to the Suburban.
