hi ok so i know some stuff when comes to working on my truck. but rebuilding motors and trans and swaping them im kinda new. k what i wanna do is replace or rebuild the motor it leaks oil and burns oil bad. it has alot of miles and i know eventually im gonna have top have it rebuilt or a new motor. my dad just had his rebuilt and it was about 1700. i looked and found a brand new crate motor same motor for 2000. so i would probably got that route and sell the old one. but here is my question. i would like to go with a bigger motor like a 454 or bigger. i plan on putting a lift kit and some swampers on it so i want plenty of hp. to put a 454 in it what would i have to change as far as computer and trans ect. in oder to run the 454

You didn't mention what year your truck is, or what engine is in it now. There are so many things to consider, when making engine swaps.

I would first decide what your main use will be for your truck. Then go from there...
