2016 Silverado w/5.3 L83 Engine Swap Question

2016 Silverado w/5.3 L83 Engine Swap Question

Postby tmb0262 [OP] » Jul 26 2020, 12:33am

I have a 2016 Silverado with a 5.3 L83 in it. A guy not far from me is selling a 2015 5.3 L83 out of a Tahoe. These are the same engine right? So if I buy the Tahoe engine I can build it the way I want and basically just do an engine swap when I'm ready? Also can a 5.3 be bored out to a 6.2 or will it need to be sleeved?

From what I can tell the engines are the same so you should be safe to purchase it, From what I have researched you would be better off getting the block sleeved here is a video Texas Speed posted showing off their sleeves.
How big can you go with stock sleeves I could not find any information on.
