I have a 1975 Chevy c10 pickup with a 350 it is automatic and is only 2 wheel drive it recently throw a rod I am now debating on what to do with the engine I have found a 454 with about 450hp for sale near my home so my question is how hard will it be to swap it to a 454 or would the smart thing be to just stick with a 350 I need it for everyday driving but also would like to be able to take it out to the strip every once in a while thanks hope for help

Got lots of money for gasoline? If not I'd consider dropping in as late model engine and trans as you can get your hands on.
