    Well picked up a 5.3 for her, still looking for a 4L80E. Think that will be the next step along with some clean up and floorboard rust hole repair.

    Loooks good
    I didn’t do anything to the 5.3 I swapped in except intake and valve cover gaskets

    Took the engine out of a wrecked 2002 with 271k miles on it and dropped it in

    I did flip the fuel injection rail around so the hoses came off the passenger side

    And the Vintage Air was very worthwhile

    If to get a VA shop around
    Rutters Rod Shop in NC had the best price by a significant amount
