    I know of a 5.3L short block near me but it's an 07 year. You would have to press off the 58x wheel and press on the 24x reluctor wheel.

    It is the L31 engine 5.7L Vortec.


    The Vortec 5700 L31 (Vin code 8th digit "R") is a V8 truck engine. Displacement is 5.7 L. It is the last production Generation I small-block from Chevrolet. The cylinder heads feature combustion chambers and intake ports very similar to those of the LT1 V8, but without the reverse-flow cooling. As such, the L31 head is compatible with all older small-blocks, and is a very popular upgrade. It offers the performance of more expensive heads, at a much lower cost. It does, however, require a specific intake manifold (A 5.7L, 350 CI L31, Vortec engine has eight bolts attaching the intake manifold or four per head, as opposed to the "traditional" six bolts per head; twelve in total found on older Chevrolet small blocks). The L31 was replaced by the 5.3 L 5300 LM7. The 2002 model year was the final year for the L31 5.7 L small block V8 whose origins date back to 1955. The Vortec 5700 produces 255 hp (190 kW) to 350 hp (261 kW) at 4600 rpm and 330 lb⋅ft (447 N⋅m) to 350 lb⋅ft (475 N⋅m) of torque at 2800 rpm. It is currently being produced as a crate engine for marine applications and automotive hobbyists as the 'RamJet 350' with minor modifications. Known as the GEN 1+, this was the final incarnation of the 1955-vintage small block, ending production in 2005 with the last vehicle being a Kodiak/Topkick HD truck. Volvo Penta and Mercury Marine still produces the L31. The "MARINE" intake is a potential upgrade for L31 trucks despite its cast iron construction. Using this "MARINE" intake will allow the use of common types of Bosch-style injectors with various flow rates while still maintaining emission compliance.

    yes Sir that's the engine

    I still can't understand what happened to the engine that was running although is was skipping on 2 cylinders it did run untill the mannie swap?

    edit I see that some vans came w/ 8 litre curious if that engine would be a direct swap from the 5.7? like can someone logon to the vans PC w/ a tech2 and enter new engine as 8 liters?
