    Hey greed! I was doing some research on the 5.3 swap and came across some of your input for another guy on here, and I'm leaning towards your advise in terms of yeah 5.3s are cheaper but i'm worried they're going to be severely lacking in torque. My situation is this...96 lt1 stock heads 1.6rr cc306 lts 3"ory and tune with 4.10s i was stupid and reused the stock rods and pistons and i think i got a bad wrist pin now, so i'm faced with either pull it out and do h beams and forged pistons and le2 heads while i'm at it.....or i have a line on a complete 5.3 with harness and computer for 300, but my worry is having to swap accessorys and new headers cam intake etc etc to wind up with less hp/tq than i have now and probably be over what i would have into the lt1 that should be close to 400 or more?? bottom line is i'm asking your opinion on stick it into my lt or do the 5.3 swap? any advice is greatly appreciated

    I wouldn't buy heads off of ebay, and don't skimp here. this is where most of the power is made.
    Stick with reputable shops. I've learned that one the hard way. Saving a few bucks now may cost you much more down the road.

    The LT brackets won't work on an LS engine. your best bet is to find a wrecked LS and pull what you need.
