1996+ 5.7s I love. Alot of power and alot of low end torque and alot of options to add tons of power to their already 255HP and 330ft/lbs or tourque. 1995- 5.7s I've never driven one but I do know that there are alot of power adding options as well.
Just the MPGs suck

I LOVE MY 5.7!!!
Literally love it its amazingly powerful, sometimes yah it bad on gas but its has so much power. The Vortec 5.7 in my Tahoe is definitely perfectly paired with the 4l60e they put power to the road with amazing precision and efficiency. Compared to the previous generation of 350 the gen I Vortec has 25% more horsepower. 200 VS. 255 Its the perfect engine tranny combo for older trucks. Also it is a very advanced engine with SFI, higher compression, full engine monitoring from the computer and the computer controls the engine and tranny very well. Another thing is the engine is so easy to work on and parts are readily available.

I think it is an awesome engine as well. At first I thought they were (overrated until I owned one)!
