    Out of what vehicle is the 6.0?
    What PCM are you going to use?

    Become familiar with the major threads on fuel systems, swap mounts, headers, etc, and we can then better answer specific questions.

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    mrvedit the 6.0 came from o3 chevy van. i plan on using the stock PCM and harness. never done this before but mounts, headers,fuel,oil pan all seem pretty easy compared to the wiring thats what has me worried. i still have a few more parts to get before im even close to getting motor in.

    The wiring is really nowhere near as bad as it may seem.

    There is a number that is casted into the head. The number is found by the valve cover at the back of the head on the drivers and at the front on the passage side.

    wiring is pretty easy, i did my own the first time and then bought a premade harness because my original didnt clean up as well as i would like it. You'll love the 6.0, mine put down 313/355 at the wheels in completely stock trim through my T56.

    jb451 thats about what im looking for, 300 plus hp but more than anything i want reliability and decent mpg. i know a lot of people say that you will never get your money back if mpg are the reason for the swap but i cant see putting all this time and money into the car and cant afford to drive it because of gas prices. plus the LS just looks bad azz.

    I put a little over 500 miles on mine since I got it on the road late last fall. I havent checked mpg yet. I haven't checked my speedo gauge with the GPS yet, but it seems pretty close. I have also done some tuning and took it to the track last fall. All I know for sure right now, is if it doesn't get better than the 10.5-11 mpg that all of my 2500hd's get, it is a lot more fun to drive!
