    Hi everyone new to CK5.
    I'm planning on doing the engine swap. I have a full donor ( 06 Silverado 5.3)
    I want to put in my 78 K10. I'll post some pics of both trucks.
    I've never done anything like this so I'm looking for any advice, links, videos... I had my front end coil overs done by @fortifyoffroad and @sreidmx did an amazing job kept everything within my budget.
