for a few more bucks, do the 6.0. thats not a bad price at all if it includes everything aside from pcm. those can be had cheap enough.

the 6.0 is just a better motor. the price sounds about right for all of that. the 5.3 would be a good upgrade from the v6(im guessing thats what you have), but you will be wondering how much better the 6.0 would be. a all aluminum 330 hp 370 ft/lbs vs a 295 330 ft/lbs cast iron block for only a 200 dollar difference? 6.0..... Do it

all aluminum? umm...no. theres a few all alu 5.3s, but GM hasn't put any other alu blocks in any trucks. i promise my lq4 block is just as much iron as my 5.3 is...
