But it only makes 230 hp out of 454 cubic inches!

Motherfucker it’s a Mark IV/Gen V big block backed by a TH400/4L80 (in 91) and either 3.73 gears (90) or 4.10 (91+) in a 14 bolt rear (9.5" ring gear).

You can literally open a Jeg’s catalog and double this thing’s HP in a weekend- and not have to mess with the drivetrain. Maybe the torque converter.

This truck is, and always has been, tons of potential with a red bow on it.
