I think I've decided to go with a 5.3L like what is in my Avalanche as a few companies are making the computers to allow that kind of install. It is also almost as light as the AMC 258 20 year old six cylinder in there now. Which blows my mind.

Engines really they are all the same..... <--- see smiley?
You got me!!!
