    Default 5.3 to a 6.0 swap

    Im looking at putting a different motor in my truck right now i have to factory 5.3 in it but i was looking at putting a 6.0 in it. What would all have to be done would i have to buy a new computer or could i have my old one flashed. I know i would have to have it tuned and what not, but i'm just looking for a little input from everyone!
    Thanks

    should be a direct swap, then just have the tune updated for the 6.0. you might want to consider the 4l80e tranny if your truck doesn't have one already.

    Wouldnt putting in a bigger cam and crank push the displacement out??? sounds cheaper then a whole engine/ tranny swap....

    A cam has nothing to do with displacement.

    New heads and getting it bored out would make the difference up, I personally like the 6.0 way better and that's from personal experience. I would research parts interchangeability between those two motors, you would be surprised what GMPP has in there catalogs if you have the $$$$$

    He has another thread saying he's burning oil, so the motor is probably shot.

    I second the 4L80e.
