i found a guy who owns a late model wrecking yard and has a few new chevy pickups. i can get a complete vortec 6.0 with 5800 miles and an nv 4500 for $1500 (yeah i know it sounds to good to be true, but it is true). the truck has heavy front end damage and i'm pretty sure there is no engine damage (it's still in the truck), but if there is damage he'll sell me a 5300 vortec for the same price out of a truck with rear damage. anyway, i was wondering how hard this swap would be. i know i'll have to change wiring harnesses since mine is a diesel now, but it sure would be nice.
