The 5.7 will fit, but then you need to have your computer reprogrammed for that motor.

5.3 is way better than 5.7... you can drop in a 6.0 from the tahoe or 2500 trucks. The 5.3 is pretty powerful as it is tho

Yep, I agree...

My 2011 Silverado currently has a v8 6.2L vortec installed. I love it.

It does have the power needed to do the job. Still have to some work to get it tuned the way I want it but as of now it does the job.

Could you put a 6.2 in. A 2011 silverado with a 4.8 ?

If you put the motor, trany, ecu & wiring harness in with it. You would need motor mounts and the exhaust manifolds, and such also.

Actually a 6.2 will bolt right in. You will need it'd ecu or reprogram yours.
