Just to warn your its gonna love fuel lol. I got a 6.0 and a 5.3 and the power is almost uncomparable but it likes the fuel.

O yea I already know that. I'm putting it in a 1/2 ton, not much difference but that's not a big deal right now..

If you are using the 4L60E tranny, get that built soon. The 6.0 has a lot more torque and will wear that stock tranny out quick depending on how you drive it. Are you getting the LQ4 or LQ9 6.0?
