Yes it can be done. As with any engine swap you will need to source the correct accessories and cross a few bridges as you go. Some of the 3/4 ton trucks in that year had a big block 454 installed from the factory.

This engine has a stock GM 4 bolt main block that is bored .060" over. There is no maximum horsepower rating on the block, however Blueprint uses aftermarket blocks for their big block Chevy engines that are 640 horsepower and above.
