    Just a question here, Why would you buy a 5.3 when you had a 4.8 and not buy the engine harness and pcm with it?

    swap parts from old to new motor you said it's a gen iv does it hav dod ? if so you will need harness and pcm to make it work . might be better to buy a similar year motor instead and if your swaping go for the 6.0l lot's more performance options
    If speed kill's do brakes give life ?
