    The long block came pretty complete... just need my water pump, distributor and intake/exhaust manifolds (and of course sensors, flex plate, etc). I snapped off some of the exhaust studs trying to replace them, so just ordered new manifolds ($120 from Advance Auto for the pair with new gaskets, bolts, studs, etc).
    Hopefully I'll be back on the road by the end of this week...
    Summit Racing has the same motor for $2009, but they had a core charge and required return of the old long block. Since mine is all disassembled and just back from the machine shop (was only about $300 more for the new engine than for the machine work), I'll just take it alll to the scrap yard for weight and try to sell or give away anything that is still good.
    Just throwing it out there... Jegs was the best price and the engine was delivered in 2 days (free shipping).
    Because I live on a windy, dead-end street in the mountains, I met the delivery truck (18-wheeler) at a truck stop and he put the crate on my little flat trailer.
    Just curious, can you link to the page (or give the model number) for where the engine is listed on their website?

    I'm REALLY sorry! I am just seeing this now. This is hte long block I used:

    I actually have not been terribly attentive to the forums and just logged back in to ask about a problem I'm having with the truck. I've been focusing on a Jeep project and the Dodge Durango I picked up to handle duties while the Suburban was "down"...

    That is a good price. Just for the heck of it I priced out a 5.3L L59 long block. The best I can find is a rebuild and they want $8,000 on jegs or summit. I can get it directly from GM for $3,500
