for my swap i spent close to 7k for everything (*price of trans from TCI was around 2800 bucks alone*). you can get away with spending around 3k with just swapping it as it is. putting some basic bolt on go fast goodies. put a nice shiftkit on the 4L60E and call it the day. u would be happier in the long run. because it leaves a broader range for future power upgrades.02 Chevy HD 6.0Liter w/ Allison Trans, 6in Fabtech lift, 16in Eagle Alloy Rims on 35" Mud Brutes, Debadged, 6k HIDs, Smoked Tails, Summit Glasspack Custom catback exhaust

5.3 to 6.0 swap
I am getting ready to do the swap on a 99 silverado ext cab z71!
the 6.0 I am using came from a 2005 silverado 2500hd! The 6.0 only has 46,000 on it!
I know I have to change intakes! I am building my 4l60e with a kit of monster transmissions!
What else do I need! I have had several people say they done the swap just changing intakes and oil sending units, will there be any computer issues! If so does anyone know who will program or flash it for me, and what would be the cost of this service

Ls engines love boost! Rebuild the engine and install a turbo or two and you should be able to tow a freight train with 35's

scooter, just fyi, we all should do a thorough search before asking a question, but the search results are so varied, they almost seem to be random. I know it is the best we can do, and I am not complaining, but it might be worth considering the range of results the poster got if they did do a search for "ls engine swap", or similar...
Good luck with your swap, Silveradoman.Las Vegas, NV...2001 Silverado 1500 LT Z71 Stepside X-cab, 171,000 miles, 5.3, cat-back duals, leveling kit, 3.73, 17" rims, more to come...
