like I posted above,its the roller cam/fuel injection and ignition that makes it a nicer package. spending 12 k to save $100,oo worth of fuel is not good math.If you want it all in an old car the the LS line has a lot to offer.

Old engines can accept fuel injection,roller cams and better ignition. The cathedral heads do offer more potential. O/drive transmissions come in many varieties,but at a cost
Lsx is just a way of just saying ls series without specifying which one. If i do the swap it will definitely be a 5.3 since they are so abundant.

One thing that worries me is the transmission. I've heard you can use the flywheel from a 4.8L 5 speed truck and then just bolt up the rest. Can anyone confirm this is correct? What about the clutch linkage, will it clear everything?
