Take the 5.3L, swap it in and you'll instantly pick up power, mileage and driveability. Then down the road swap the cam, throw on some headers, swap to an LS6 intake and port the stock heads and install LS1 intake valves- you know have 450+ flywheel hp and STILL have better mileage than when you started.

There is nothing better about the old stuff than the new stuff.
You posted right as i did lol.
So basically if i have the time and money there is no reason not to swap to the lsx engine. I guess i should add it to my plans then
