  1. A few months ago I bought a 2007 GMC Sierra (new body) with 150,000 miles on the clock. It has the LH6 in it. It has since gotten cold outside and when I start it in the mornings It has what I am sure is a rod knock. It goes away after the engine warms up. It has good oil pressure. I have always been a ford guy and wasn't too familiar with these engines otherwise I would have avoided these early AFM engines like the plague. It sounds a lot "deeper" than a lifter click. I have removed the valve covers and confirmed that I don't have a collapsed lifter or flattened cam. The thing consumed over a quart of oil in the last 2,000 miles. I had a cylinder 1 misfire and when I pulled the plug it was pitted and the porcelain was cracked showing tons of detonation. I replaced the plug and that fixed the misfire. All the other plugs look great. Onto my question. With all these issues an the reputation of these AFM lifters and oil consumption I kinda want to get ahead of it and plan on putting an engine in it. This is my daily driver so i need to minimize down time. I was looking to get a block and get it ready to go in the truck (as money permits) so there is no huge rush or surprises. The problem is these specific LH6 Aluminum blocks were only used from 2005-2009 and are not the easiest/cheapest to find. The LY5 however is the iron counterpart to it and cheap and easy to find since they produced them 2007-2014 and were more common. I don't care about the 100lbs. Does everything bolt up? And would the computer freak out? I plan on eliminating the AFM and putting some trustworthy lifters and a cam in it so I will need some computer work done anyways hopefully it can be programmed enough to handle a different block? Would someone with HP Tuners be able to do the computer work or does the whole thing need to be sent off/replaced?. I've rebuilt a few engines It's just this computer stuff that gets kinda hayzey. If I am deleting the AMF is there another Gen IV block that would work for this application? Screw it and get a 6.0 and stroke it?
  2. Hey there everyone, New to the forum and seeking help! I spun a rod bearing on my oil burning 2008 Silverado 1500 LC9 @145,000kms (don't ask me how, I have no idea) When it comes down to it I can not find a lc9 for a reasonable price up here in Canada. However, I have found a low km complete LY5 for very cheap. I realize they are both afm, but my previous LC9 has flexfuel. I have never ran e85 nor will I ever. That being said will the LY5 drop in place of the LC9 without wiring / programming / any issues? I am in a bind and need to make a decision quickly. Thanks in advance for any help! Simon R
