    Default thanks a lot

    but seein how they didnt make the 5 speed for the 5.3 which doesnt make sense at all i mean i could see gm not putting a 5.3 in a two wheel drive swb with a 5 speed cause that would just be wicked...but could i use a manual tranny from the 4.8 vortec and just get the adapter...and maybe use all the electronic and everything you had listed there....sorry to change the subject but im just trying to figure out my options...thanks

    Sure you could. Find a donor truck to get all the parts and it would be cheap too!.
