    Budget. Bigger will come later. And when I only spend $500 on the motor no biggy.

    lowest priced 5.3 is $350.21
    highest is 11xx and lots in between

    they are out there. Harness and ecm wont be much more.

    Yeah other than craigslist, LKQ is the best place around here. Only reason I didn't go there is harness/PCM/accessories aren't guarenteed to be there, but if they are they do come with. I was planning on stopping in to see if any of their motors had everything, but then I found this gem. If I weren't going for the budget 5.3 and throwing on corvette accessories that would be the way I'd go.

    After a long spring cleaning (last couple months) and a few other back logged projects I've got the frame in the barn. Tore it apart last night and got out the 5.3 swap parts. Things should start moving at about 8 hours of work a week or so. :D

    Front end had the shocks, springs, and sway removed and the rear is getting drop springs and blocks installed to give a better idea of where it is going to sit before setting the final ride height.

    yea i know the feeling, my v8 swap took about a thousand times longer than it should. And so far so has every other project. Shit happens, but ill certainly be following this one.
