I'm not going to say you can't, but it will be extremely difficult to do so, and when you finally did get it in and running you will be disappointed with the performance. so if you ruined your 5.3 then either have it rebuilt or find a used one to put in. If you can afford it try a crate engine from the dealer or from Summit racing.
