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

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.

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.

me and some buddys have been debating...will a 6.2 drop right into a 2000 single cab with a 5.3 in it?

I am thinking about the same thing. I have the 5.3 and I want more HP and torque. My gas mileage is terrible as it is so I don't really care about gas mileage. I want a truck that will pull a Razor and a Harley. It has to be a half ton and low enough to get into parking garages.I just got back from Vancouver and my truck fit into the parking garage by 3 1/2 inches

Flat on the floor towing two Harleys and a inclosed trailer up a slight grade it would go 80 MPH. Holy smokes the motor ran great but it was screaming pretty good.
