    Okay, so I've been kicking around ideas in searching for a new truck to replace my sometimes problematic Suburban,

    And as stupid as this sounds I've seen a few trucks with bad motors, and it got me thinking; shell in a Vortec 350 crate motor, new trans and T-case, all that other jazz and I'll have basically a brand new truck drive-train wise, here's what I've got so far;

    Vortec 350 crate motor, reman 4L80E and a rebuilt T-case as stated above, maybe press new U-joints in the drive-shafts and rebalance them while I'm at it; I would like to have a 100% new motor, everything from the block to every sensor, valve, hose, bolt, belt, and gasket; along with a few upgrades in the form of a 395 Cam/1.6 Rockers/Spring kit, a tune from BBP (Delete the EGR and Cats and anything else I don't need), MPFI fuel spider, V-max intake spacer, a true CAI, a shift kit for the trans, upgraded coolers and whatnot;

    Anything else I'm missing? Is there a list for every sensor and all the little fiddly bits like that anywhere?
    Any recommendations or ideas are greatly appreciated,

    Thanks ~ Brody
