Hey guys! I've got a possible line on a low milage 5.3L V8 from a 2000 Chevy 1/2 ton that a buddy of mine totalled a while back. I was reading, and it seems those engines are good for 285 horse, and about 320 ft lbs of torque in 2000. I want to put this into my K25 to replace the TPI engine, infront of an NV4500 / NP241. The truck has 33" tires, and 4.10 gears. Do you think that this thing would have enough power to be useful in a tow vehicle, or should I be saving my pennies for a 6.0L? The largest load I'd be towing would be up to 8 quads (two on a sled deck, 6 on a trailer) or a 22 foot camper, whichever is heavier. I'd also be hauling water with it (1000 gallons at a time, on a 2500 lb trailer), and hauling my K5 to wheeling spots.
