Silverado 5.3L Engine swap

Unread post by Brentz » Tue Feb 21, 2017 12:33 am

I have a 95 Silverado with a cylinder with 5psi so i would like to swap my 5.3l from a 2000 GMC in to the 95. Is this possible and if so how much of a pain in the ass would it be? Thank you advance for answer.

I have seen different opinions on the swap. why would you want to make a change like that instead of getting a period correct motor for your vehicle? Check to see if all your plug in connectors match up between the motors

staying with the OE engine would be a lot easier. I have heard that changing the engine to a 5.3 will change the electronics and some people change the trans with the motor.

I put a 5.3 in my 1992 w/t. In mine i used a Microsquirt, but i should have used the stock computer and HP Tuners. This is still a really easy swap and much better than any 350 i ever had.
