I could pull a 20ft car hauler trailer with my 99 Silverado 5. Heck, if they offered that motor in the new Burb, maybe I'd consider a new Suburban. If I could average over 20mpg, I'd consider it. Buyers could choose from two optional engines. Post 3 does confirm that the 94-95 2500-3500 series 454 equipped trucks had 255 horsepower and 405 ft.
What kind of gas milage should he expect. The truck is cherry so well worth the effort to upgrade. The chip was re-burned and it did help. I should add the truck was orginally at about 1000 feet of elevation and now lives at 3500 and altitudes greater than 10K would be occasionally traversed. It just doesn't have anything left. It developed 230 horsepower and 385 foot-pounds of torque. Still uses a lot of gas regardless.
Loaded pulling a car trailer is 9. I have a bad habit of having a heavy foot on the freeway. My 97 2500 Suburban with a 7. Mileage isnt appreciably changed loaded or unloaded. It's been a while since I've looked into them so I don't remember prices or anything. .
I will keep every posted on progress. I got rid of my '00 crewcab short bed 2500 7. He also started getting less than 14mpg after that. The were very gutless from the early seventies due to super low compression and small lift, short duration camshafts. Hello Folks, I am brand new to the forum and my first entry will probably be a no brainer as I will be stating the obvious when I complain of poor power from a 1994 Chevy 3500 dually 4x4 with the big block. Like I said, my dad's is stock and the only reason he's not using it to pull that fifth wheel any more is because he just didn't have enough brakes to stop the thing safely with that truck.
I get depending on how watered down the gas is here in Detroit 11-15mpg depending on how i drive and how many passangers i have with me. The front headroom was 40 inches and front hip room measured 60. My dad's is an early '94. I was told that beginning in '94, the 454 horsepower rating actually increased to 255 from 230 and the ft. Thanks Hello first post here so bare with me. As for the truck, when it hit 100,000 the thing started having problems. ?? Ok, so my buddy is looking at buying a 1988 Chevy Silverado with a 454, auto.
I should add the truck was orginally at about 1000 feet of elevation and now lives at 3500 and altitudes greater than 10K would be occasionally traversed. This includes running up some prettye steep hills. I don't think you want any of that edelbrock injection bs the stock stuff should handle 400-500hp. Post Reply Thanks Folks, I am going to start with the obvious fuel filter, locate a stock eprom and a comprehensive tune. Art Post Reply Ya cam and headers check the tune. The crew cab version sat on a 168. He also used to haul a 12.
If you wanted to work with your current engine, you could spice things up with a cam in the range of 205-220 deg. The extended cab version tipped the scales at 4,387 pounds, depending on optional equipment and engine. The big difference is available hp when pulling steep grades, the Suburban can speed up on steep grades while the Dually can only hold it's own. It developed 190 horsepower and 300 foot-pounds of torque. Will that add significant power or should I save my money and invest in a 502 crate truck motor? Trust me there are worse things than than a lack of intimacy with a Snap-On box end. Thanks All, I am overseas now so the corrections will be executed by a garage sadly and I will be denied the joy of big block intimacy. You don't have a 454 and dually for gas mileage.
Rear hip room was 59. What do the 454 2500's get in gas mileage? The standard power plant in the 1994 Silverado 3500 dually was a 5. It developed 180 horsepower and 360 foot-pounds of torque, but there was a heavy-duty model of this engine that reached 190 horsepower and 390 foot-pounds of torque. I was just pricing injectors for my suburban bored as mine are fine at the moment when I noticed that the stock part numbers for the '93 and '94 are different. How much etc I am still learning.
This truck is truly a beauty and it drives like a dream. Interior rear crew cab dimensions offered 40. Correct me if I'm wrong, but a '94 454 is a Gen V. One difference is that I also have a whipple supercharger on mine, but to be honest it really didn't affect the mileage much from the stock configuration. I am now deployed overseas so I have to work through my wife and a garage and I will not have the self gratification of greasy wrench twisting.
