    Yes I would definately agree with 2tone04 on that point, go with the 6.0 swap that will give you more of a performance platform to go off of. You can't cram 2 pounds of s%#^ in a 1 pound bag, and expect it to beat a small block chevy off the line. It's your truck, but I just don't want to see you dump $20,000 into something that can't hack it down the road. :neutral:

    lol that was funny with the guy in the hat.


    i also agree with 2ToNe04, build a 6.0 for boost and make another truck like this one

    I plan on spending about 10 grand on the motor and I am faster than a stock 6.0 rite now. Why would I want to go back and still spend 10 grand on the swap. I want the fastest 4.8 silvy out there I can make. I understand what you guys are saying but dont the 4.8 have a lot of potential in it. I mean to me it is not gonna be like shoving two pounds of Sh*t in a 1 pound bag. I mean if it was a 4.3 I could understand. It isnt like the 5.3 has 100 more hp than the 4.8

    what if an ss pulled up to you with the same exact mods?


    what happens when you run out spray?

    There's no replacement for displacement. I don't necessarily buy that all the time, but I also love to motor swapped vehicles. Either way you go, should be a kick ass truck by the time you're done with it. 10 grand on any motor will get you far.
