    if it were damn near any small block for free i'd say yes, but a free 6.0 is a pot of gold. aftermarket carb manifolds work awesome on these motors. 450 horse @ the fly on an lq9 can be attained with cam and long tubes. to get 450 wheel you will need a set of heads, or at least a lot of head work on factory castings, and a big cam/intake.

    Just have it checked before you do anything. You don't want to spend money on a junk block.

    Always do and will with this one .but I pulled the engine out of the truck, I used the truck as my service call truck.The engine ran good but there was a bad wristpin ,so the shop foreman bought a new one.Every thing is on the engine, coils, fan,intake,pullies everything but the Ac unit.
