Default 2.7 to 5.3 LS swap

So i had an 07 SRT8 magnum in 2009. Loved the car,hated the trans. I always said i would have another,but with a manual. So now the fun begins! I found a one owner,california 2006 base model. Spun rod bearing. I figured i would try to roll a bearing in it and drive it for a while. That lasted about 40 mi.! I was more than dissapointed when i first saw the condition of the crank! I don't think the journals were even hardened!
The plan all along was to swap a v8 and a 6 spd in it. I already have a 5.3 LS in the floor so i figured,well,they are an easy swap motor,dependable,lots of support,and will piss alot of people off at Mopar Nats! Lol.
So that is the plan,a 2001 5.3 LS with a 6spd.,with the help of Silver Sport transmissions with the 6spd. I have the motor/trans out of the magnum now and hope to start fitment soon. Stay tuned!
