I just picked up a 99 police tahoe 2wd with a messed up motor. So I am looking at all motor options any info and links would help. I was thinking a 6.0 but if that turns out to be a pain in the ass I will prob just get another 5.7 and beef it up? Let me know thanks

It is very clean for being a Illinois state trooper truck it only has rust on the back cargo door and rock chips on the hood

Doubt The 6.0 is going to be easy to do without alot of wiring. I would go with another 5.7 unless I'm wrong.

I would def try and put a LSx motor in there. If you are mechanically knowledgeable then I'm sure you can get it done.

Get with ScooterK on here. He works with a guy that has a similar rig that he swapped a 6.0 into, I think it's a LQ4. Plus, ScooterK knows his shit. His truck is dope as fuck. He's in the Des Moines area. He's a buddy of Rich's (RRMCCABE).


Holy crap, didn't see Greg's post.

That bitch (the engine, not Greg. LOL) drops right in, it looks like.
