Doesn't include the size of LSx's but will give you first gen's to compare against.

The only other thing to be considered is the LSx's are a one pc rear main and would require a flywheel for the same.Really not a big problem because of LSx's that come with T56's.Good thing is a hydro throw-out bearing which would make hooking it up to a master pretty easy.

The 5.3's can be had from pick and pulls for a range of $300 to $500.Then fashion a junk yard turbo off a import car.I don't think the external size of a LSx is any bigger than the first gen's.
