Also chevy's 350 or the 454 was the most popular choice in this body style.
That is true. My dad used to have a 1995 Chevy 3500 with the 6.5. It was in the shop multiple times. Everytime it was because of the same isssue. The dealerships had no clue what they were doing and it showed. It was a nice truck for sure though. He kept it for a few years after and then traded it for 1999 Ford F-250 7.3L
