My 2006 GMC Envoy Denali w/ a 5.3L LH6 engine and 4L60e Trans. seized yesterday, so I need to replace it asap. I can get a 6.0L LQ4 Engine w/ a 4L65e trans within my price range. Can I just swap out the complete Engine/ Trans. with no the modifications but a Tune for the 6.0?
I see a lot of info for LM4 (5.3) to LQ4 or LQ9 (6.0) swaps, but nothing about swapping my original LH6 (5.3) engine.
I rebuild Transmissions so the Trans wont be an issue, I can build that up overnight.
Just don't want to put another 5.3 in if I can get the 6.0

Everything will work the same except the cam sensor is in a different location and you will need to find holes in the side of the block for the knock sensors to mount

How did this go? Did you do the 6.0? Also, how did you handle the 4Low/4Hi, Auto/2wd switch? I don't believe the TBSS or the 9-7Aero have the switch. How did you handle that or how will you if you haven't done it yet?
