    I think they all the engines will bolt up.

    4.8, 5.3, 6.0

    im not sure i could be wrong, you might need adapter. i doubt it though.

    Also i would go with a 6.0 swap, you dont wanna regret that extra power later on.

    yes the 5 speed will bolt up, you just need a new flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate, as they are bigger for the 4.8 5 speed then the 4.3 5 speed
