History
Have had this RV for about 18 years. The PO had a Allison 545 4 speed in stalled. First think I did was convert to TBI. Helped greatly in power and economy. Then about 3 years ago the 545 left me on the side of the road. Replaced it with a 4L80e. After it burning up withing 175 miles then rebuilding it. The 454 started losing power/economy. So! Time to rebuild the engine. Went with a stroked 0.25", hydraulic roller cam. Ran like a strapped ape for almost 2000 miles then dropped a valve. Wasn't home so had to pay some 'apes' to rebuild it. About 1500 miles, a new computer to run the TBI and one wrecker ride home that 454 came out and the fun began. Bought a 1996 Dodge Cummins w/200K on it.
