Thread: 6.2 engine swap

Threaded View

  1. #1

    Default 6.2 engine swap

    I have a 2009 silverado that had a 5.3 lmg motor that I am wanting to swap with a l9h 6.2 from a gmc. I have the 6l80 tranny so it should be a direct swap but the l9h has vvt and I am wondering if I can just switch over ther timing chain sprocket and cover to eliminate the vvt and what advantages and disadvantages will it have?

    Also if I wanted to go with the vvt how would I go about since my ecu and harness was not equiped for vvt?

    The first pic is the one with vvt

    Thanks
