Hello, New member with ls swap questions. Hope I'm in the right section. wanting to put a 6.0 4l80 in my 93 g30. I plan on pulling my 30ft. camper and thought this would be a good set up. haven't purchased any parts yet. Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Mike! A warm West Texas welcome to the site!

While I too am partial to the 454 BBC, grin I drove a then new 5.3 as a work truck for a year. Chevy did good.
An LS motor will require the engine controller and harness for that motor. So that's a must have and not cheap. Package deal, better I'd think.
Good Wrenching Mike!

thank you for the welcome and advise, I'm leaning towards the ls because of space saving plus a mildly modified ls makes as much HP as a big block would. Don't get me wrong, i grew up in a big block mussel car family and had some bad a** rides myself. Nothing sounds like a healthy big block in my option.

Here's my thread on my 5.3/4L60E swap. Most of this will translate to your swap.

https://www.vanning.com/threads/ubbthreads.php/topics/750651/84-g20-ls-swap-project.html#Post750651

Since your van is already fuel injected, you'll save a ton of hassle with the fuel system. You'll just need a new pump to provide proper pressure and connections to the 6.0 rail.

Depending on the year 6.0 you find, programming/wiring will differ. LT1swap.com was a ton of help.

There's also a LS Swapped van group on Facebook that you might want to join. Good luck!

I'm doing the same swap in my '86. From the research ive done, like "wedgy" said get everything from the same donor. If youre going with the drive-by-wire throttle make sure you get the TAC module from that vehicle as well. Theres a ton of good info out there, check out lt1swap.com and good luck!
