I've been checking on the hemi swaps, but they're just too much for what you get. LS is interesting and aftermarket is plentiful. I'd have to go from manual to auto for the hemi, but it sounds like there might be stick options for the LS as well.

I look forward to hearing some updates as you progress.

Thanks buddy... I think the baby 5.3 is coming soon than i expected. Just raked in some from taxes so instead of lifting i guess this takes priority. Will update hear as soon as i know more.

Imagine a forced induction 5.3

A supercharger or a small turbo to build boost around 1500 rpms would be insane!

I am surprised that the weight difference between a hemi and LS has not been mentioned. No contest!
