    Yes I would definately agree with 2tone04 on that point, go with the 6.0 swap that will give you more of a performance platform to go off of. You can't cram 2 pounds of s%#^ in a 1 pound bag, and expect it to beat a small block chevy off the line. It's your truck, but I just don't want to see you dump $20,000 into something that can't hack it down the road.

    I plan on spending about 10 grand on the motor and I am faster than a stock 6.0 rite now. Why would I want to go back and still spend 10 grand on the swap. I want the fastest 4.8 silvy out there I can make. I understand what you guys are saying but dont the 4.8 have a lot of potential in it. I mean to me it is not gonna be like shoving two pounds of Sh*t in a 1 pound bag. I mean if it was a 4.3 I could understand. It isnt like the 5.3 has 100 more hp than the 4.8

    i doubt your faster than a ss right now.... sorry to say

    what if an ss pulled up to you with the same exact mods?


    what happens when you run out spray?

    There's no replacement for displacement. I don't necessarily buy that all the time, but I also love to motor swapped vehicles. Either way you go, should be a kick ass truck by the time you're done with it. 10 grand on any motor will get you far.
