2000 GMC Sierra 1500 SL Z71 edition, 5.3 Vortec V8, 4X4, Red, Extended Cab, Automatic
I was at the river last week and a guy came over checking my truck out. I opened my hood and we were discussing different engines and other stuff. He told me that he believed my engine is a 6.0 not a 5.3 like I had thought. He told me where and how to find the engine number but I've had no luck. Is it on the back and which side, driver or passenger? I know it will start with a T but how many digits and is it closer to the top or bottom? I'm really wanting to know cuz I'm pretty damn sure it's a 5.3 but he seemed confident enough. His son agreed and said the 5.3 doesn't have the EVAP...? Something (forgot what he called it) on the top passenger side of the engine but the 6.0 does and said the piston..something? would be different. I think he said piston order but I can't freaking remember there was a lot goinon that day. Looks like a 5.3 to me but I'm still learning.
