The V-8 engine had an overhead valve configuration, with two valves per cylinder. The vehicle also had a payload of 1,656 pounds. We bought the Ford and just returned from a 3,300 mile trip. The block is beefier and the cam is raised. More power, with less effort, means less money. The applications would be delivery vans and such. This really makes a difference in the way the engines sound at a given rpm.
Drag racing, towing, off road, ect. The total body length was 236. A four-speed automatic transmission transferred the engine's muscle to the Silverado base model's rear wheel drive and to the four-wheel drive of the extended cab version.

Some would say it is not working as hard, being larger, thus being easier on the motor. Most parts are interchangeable and one will bolt in place of the other.
My guess is 2, 1, 3 in that order. But, there were not many 427's made. During 1997 Chevy still had a big block engine, the 454 cubic inch. Both Silverado models were equipped with power windows, power mirrors and power door locks. I heard a Dodge Viper with a V-10 get on it one day. If that is indeed the case, don't worry. The base model used a rear-wheel drive transmission, while the extended cab model had a four-wheel drive transmission.
Any knowledge of actual performance : differences between the two engines? The engine was designed for power and was a monster gas eater that got 15 mpg at best. Deck height … on a short deck big block Chevy is 9. Though I love the 427, I would go with the 454, personally. Since the maximum rpm's are less, the horsepower is less. The tall deck block is taller and wider than the short deck so there are clearance issues when installing in a car. The 7400 engine was featured in the Chevy line of trucks, such as the 2500. This engine had a displacement of 350 cubic inches.
It was rated at 290 horsepower at 4,000 rpm, with 410 foot-pounds of torque at 3,200 rpm. Excluding passengers and cargo, the base model Chevrolet 1997 Silverado weighed in at 4,544 pounds. The V-10 and new chassis make for a great driving motorhome. It has lots of power and does not seem to strain when running down the freeway. We drove a Ford, with their new engine, and the it seemed to have to work a lot harder. This is due to the fact that 10W-30 allows for better gas mileage and lower emissions. The truck engine was rated at 255 horsepower and 330 foot-pounds of torque.
If higher rpms are a requirement, then the 427, would be your motor. The extended cab Silverado had a 25-gallon fuel tank. The king of the Vortec small block engines during 1997 was the 5. Also, to make the 427 run, you need the bigger heads. .
The engine generated a maximum 255 horsepower at 4,600 rpm and 330 foot-pounds of torque at 2,800 rpm. Depends on what you are doing with it. Light Truck and Passenger Car engines are the same. Are you comparing the Chevrolet 454 to the new Ford V-10, when you say the Ford engine was working harder. The extended cab model of the Silverado was equipped with 16-inch diameter wheels; 9. Road racing would be an example of needed higher rpms. They also offered cruise control and air conditioning.
This component is located on the forward-facing side of the throttle body passenger side. That higher pitched sound might be 'perceived' as 'working harder. The engine had a bore and stroke of 4. The 454 cubic inch engine was derived from the Chevy big block 454 cubic engine of 1974. Try to find a set of those. The 4300 engine was retired in 1998 by a newer 4300.
There were 16 valves total. The original Chevy Vortec engine was built in 1986, a 4. The engine had a bore and stroke of 4. Vortec engines are the base engine used in all Chevy cars and trucks and come in a variety of horsepower and torque ratings. There are two set of intake manifold gaskets on the L29 engine - the lower gaskets are between the lower intake and the heads and the upper gaskets are between the lower and upper halves of the intake manifold assembly.
The 1997 Silverado K1500 was a pickup truck developed by the Chevrolet division of General Motors. On the highway this increased to 17 mpg. This was the first truck in the Silverado series that is still in production as of 2011. A V-8 engine was at the heart of the 1997 Chevrolet Silverado in both models. I expect the Ford to be much more powerful than the 454.
