not trying to be picky with you, but you mean the 5.9l 360 right? Depends on the donor engine, are you getting one the same year, from a truck, these things are important to the question.

IF hes looking to transplant a 5.9 in place of a 5.2. he needs the torque converter from a truck with a 5.9, obviously also needs the engine as well. your going to need a 5.9 trucks ECM as well as the TCM. the 5.9 is a much cheaper engine to buy than the 5.7. IF hes looking to go for the 5.7 hes going to need the fully dressed engine with all its electronics, a BCM from what ever year 5.7 hes getting. a transmission and transfercase from whatever year 5.7 engine hes getting and its matching TCM. and then a bunch of labor.
