Here's a question the truck I'm having problems with is a 99 gmc k1500 5.7 vortex it ended up being the crank bearings it chewed up my crank pretty good well here's the question I have a 93 Chevy gmc with the 5.7 but it's carburated so I was wondering if I could take the heads and intake off the 99 and put them on the 93 block and use it in my 99 and have it bolt up to my 99 transmission it has the 4l60 or whatever in it also the 93 is 2wd and my 99 is 4x4 please let me know all info that would need to be done to make this happen thank you

Ok thanks and one more question with the 99 it has a crank sensor and the 93 doesn't I know the 99 it helps the timing or whatever know will this be a problem not having it? Or does the 93 have one, a buddy's friend told me it will matter but I haven't found nothing out about it on other sites and thanks for the info
Here's a new question for you guys I awaited a 5.3 out of a 01 Chevy 1500 for 200 bucks off my buddy I was gunna rebuild it and put it in my dad truck but I got a thinking could I put this newer 5.3 into my 99 gmc k1500 Without having to fab motor mounts and how about the tranny bolting up
Thanks guy and any options are welcome I'm all ears I'm only 19 I know a lot for a 19 but there's still a lot out there to learn so I'm always willing to listen to other peoples opinions
