  1. Thank you Mike, I appreciate your feedback. So, since you specify that an 02 LS6 will work with existing components, I assume that a 99-02 LS6 will work?
  2. I have a nice 99 stepside that I inherited from grandad and it has great sentimental value to me. Although it has 185,000 miles on it, and the 4.8L engine doesn't burn a drop of oil, it leaks oil rather significantly. Also, as most will know that have a truck with this engine, it is greatly underpowered. Would it make sense to replace the engine with a 5.7L LS-6 available from a friend who owns a salvage yard? Is this a difficult swap? What about the computer/ECM currently in the truck, do I replace the computer/ECM with one for an LS-6? One other data point is that the frame has fairly significant rust. Many thanks for you comments!
