Trans might be the same but I thought I remember seeing someone say the bell housing was different. Its not much to change but I was just pointing out the little things. Everyone just thinks its buy engine, mounts and rest is labor.zeuce said:it should bolt right up to the 4l60e but i could be wrong.
I don't mean to be a dick, but if you have to ask if it's possible you would probably be better off buying a new one with the v8 stock. If you can't afford to sell yours and buy a new one the cost of the swap done properly is probably out of reach as well.boujwa1981 said:I have a 2006 Colorado with the I4 and would like to know what it would take to put a 5.3L in it? And is it possible? I know in 2009 GM put a 5.3 in but I also read that the Colorado is bigger than 04-06 and want to know also if a V8 will fit.
what limits new colorados from doing it, beside that they are available with it, but is it only the 2.8/3.5 that can do it? or what?DBNissan said:
It can be done on the newer ones as well. DBNissan was just letting the OP know a V8 swap could be done on the older ones ALSO.Aleight said:what limits new colorados from doing it, beside that they are available with it, but is it only the 2.8/3.5 that can do it? or what?DBNissan said:
Not according to CPWIRE who's been there and done that. Look at post #42sleeper_07 said:actually it would be easier on the newer ones 08+. They had planned on putting the V8 in it in 08, so the motor mounts will except a chevy small block v8 like the LS series (including truck engines like the 5.3 and 6.0.....they are LS series or gen III and gen IV or whatever)
