I know that the 88-95 were TBI motors and in 96 they switched to the vortec motor, my initial guess would be that the blocks are different99 K1500 Suburban LT "THE BEAST"

Just did some more snooping and the 93 motor has a different style cam in it then the TBI motor and it would appear there are some other parts that would have swap over, so yes it would work but its just not a straight swap of heads and intake. Depending on what is wrong with the 97 motor it might be easier to just rebuild or get a used one from a junkyard, I know in my area they run $300-$500.
