    Anyone ever have one? Might possibly be getting one as a side project.. Its a 94 Silverado extended cab Dually with the 454 engine..154,000 miles.. this guy wants a straight trade for my 93 Benz 190e... Looks like a fun project..but just wanted some opinions? It would be a title for title even trade... PICS below.. What do you guys think should i do it???

    The 454 we think of when we hear 454 is different than the one that is in that truck.
    The LS6 454 is the real deal, putting out near 500hp, but she died in 1970. From 1971 on the 454 was at <300hp on a normal basis.
