    Hell yeah it's worth it! Even if the block is completely trashed you could still part the thing out for way more than that. It's an 01 so the LS6 intake is worth $350 at least.... see, already made $50 and I see those heads going for in the neighborhood of $250 all the time.

    I don't know about that. I know it will fit but I'm sure it's not as easy as just swap and go...

    It would be a hell of a hack job trying to piece the wiring harnesses together. In theory since most LS engines are the same externally I would venture a guess that the harness out of a V8 truck of comparable year would be an easier chore to adapt than patching a harness. 300 is definately worth it. Headers would probably even work in the truck.
