    Found a 6.0 on Craigslist from a 08-09 Tahoe with 65k complete asking 2,300$. Has the 243 heads. With that said I have found that these year tahoe engines had a problem. " #Pip4525a " http://www.tahoeyukonforum.com/threads/spun-bearing.55799/ . Anyone know if this is a motor I should stay away from or get it for a 1970 swap? Been loosing sleep over this deal help me ha-ha

    the rpo LFA is for hybrid vehicule only. the best way to decode RPO is with the VIN

    the tahoe 09 have 3 models of 6.0 liters. the LFA has no provision for 12 volts starter, the L76 is an aluminium block with AFM, the LY6 is an iron block without AFM.
    hope this can help you
