09 2500HD with a 6.0L, started to search salvage yards for a engine and they told me 2009 was a year by its self?
One told me I would have to change frt cover and maybe intake. thats not a big deal to do
but another said about the cam profile being different, will that cause a issue if I buy a newer 6.0L
and install it using all the 09 electronics? Was thinking I would just have to transfer what was different in order
to install and hookup

You should have an LY6 which was in the 07-09's, not JUST 09. L96 replaced it which is essentially the same but flex fuel capable. Block, heads, cam, etc are all the same. You can use either and just keep your injectors so you don't need to reflash. The L96 uses flex fuel injectors. I'd just swap over your intake assembly with rails, injectors, throttle body etc over to the replacement if you happen to pick up an L96, however, the LY6 shouldn't be that hard to find.
