I am looking at a complete, supposedly running gen 5 454, casting# 10114182, which is a 4 bolt block, with ,i am sure, cast internals. The engine is complete from throtle body to pan and fan to flex plate, including wireing harness and computer.
I am looking at this engine, to hopefully put in the boat, just to get back on the water for this season. The guy is wanting $480 and i am sure i can get it for $400. I was looking at the same engine, at my local junk yard, for $800+ tax.They are wanting $1000+ tax for a mark iv, at the junk yard!
I have a few questions about the difference between the mark IV and the gen5 engines.
I know the gen 5 has no fuel pump boss and i would have to run an electric fuel pump.
My main concerns are the oil pan and intake manifold/ carberator.
Would it be safe to run the stock oil pan or is it imperative to run a bigger oil pan.
Is there a difrence in intake manifold fitment, between mark iv and gen 5?
If not, how would a tunnel ram w/ two 600cfms work on a bone stock 454 truck engine? If not so good what might a good intake and carb be for a stock 454?
Are the front and rear bolt patterns the same between the mark iv and gen5? would my mark iv engine plates, fit the gen5?
Any thing else I need think about to just stick the engine in the boat and run it?
