Question type: Car Customization

I have a 1996 5.7 silverado that I want to swap the
motor with a 6.0 that came out of 2002 1500 hd  
Silverado. Will the 4L60E in my 96 fit the 6.0?

What a nightmare your going to have there, none of the electronics are going to work. You will have to use the computer and all the wiring harness from the 02 to even make the engine run then the 96 tranny will not be compatable with the 02 computer system, you will need the tranny for the 02 engine. Not going to be easy. Then you have exhaust, suspension and cooling to handle the the 6.0 engine.
