You can tell by looking at it. It looks nothing like a normal sbc. The ls1 is a beast of and engine. I would pick that up in a second. Just make sure you get the computers for it.

If it's a 5.7L and it's stock, it's certainly a Gen I sbc and not a Gen III (LS). The OBS officially ran from 88-98 but as I've said before, I've heard of later model examples, and seen a few on this (oh so honest ) internet. Give a head casting # or a block casting # and we'll see what you've got there. Without that, it's just speculation.

I don't remember a 5.7 being offered in a 2000 3500 4x4. If your lucky it might be a 6.0 ls engine. You need to find out if it is an ls engine or not. Have you seen it yet? Can you get a picture of it and the casting numbers?

5.7L was offered up until 2002, it used the 88-98 body style truck and you could get a 2500 or 3500, no 1500.

a 2000 3500 would be a 88-98 body style, thus a 5.7L or 454. no LS engines.

Someone needs to delete this thread. It the same as the "350 roller block" thread.

That's for the mods to decide. They'll probably merge them later.

FastOrange - Thanks for clearing that up.
