    Hey ya'll, I'd like to have some opinions on my prospective engine build I'd like to start some time this year.

    My truck as it sits is just a stock L33 5.3 minus CAI and Tuner.

    So here we go.

    Port and polish my stock heads (Exact same mold as the LS6 heads)
    Comp cams cam - 54-426-11
    Springs, roller lifters, new rods, maybe new timing gear and head studs.

    And Here's where I really want opinions...
    I was thinking of taking a 6.0 truck block, maybe bore it +.03
    Put in a stroker kit as follows,
    Flat top -3 cc pistons
    Compression height 1.043 in.
    4340 forged crank, 4.125 in stroke
    6.125 in H-beam rods also 4340 forged

    that would give me compression around 11-12:1

    Anyone object to this please speak now or forever hold your peace :lol:.
    Please give me any suggestions of a different cam or any other parts or if you can give suggestions of a more economical way to throw a few grand at a motor then please indulge me. I know super chargers would cost about the same for the parts im listing but I kinda want to go all motor. but I may change my mind and put dome pistons for lower compression so that when I change my mind I wont have to tear it back apart to put in new pistons.

    Check out texas-speed.com for cam kits and other parts. Id say your on the right track just dont forget about needing a better oil pump like a ported ls6 one. Even a transmission pan that holds a couple more quarts of oil since your running a 4l60e with the 5.3 im guessing... around about 500hp the motor try's to suck the trans dry.
