To be legal you will be stuck installing the same type engine but you can turn off the AFM. http://www.autoanything.com/performance- chips/range-active-fuel-management-disable-device

The device that disables the AFM, is it gauranteed to prevent the problems caused by the AFM?

Read the description. The reviews look pretty good.

Best place to order the new motor?

Try GM for a new motor. There are other tuners that can deactivate the AFM so do your research. Since your truck is long past the warranty period you don't have that to worry about. http://www.chevrolet.com/performance/crate-engines
