upgrades for 5.3

I just got my motor the other day and I want to squeeze some more power out of it. I'm thinking of getting a cam, TB, intake mani, and headers. Its goin into my truck below. I want to keep mid and top end power and add a ton of more low end to it. Also will it bolt up to a 700R4? Right now I think I have an 1800 rpm stall and I think that's too low, I just need some guidance. I don't want the thing to scream down the track but I need something more potent than a tbi 350 with 234,000 miles on it lol.

This is going into a 2500 truck?

If so, you need to go here: http://www.ls1truck.com/forums/lsx-truck-conversions/

Lol, you broke my sarcasm meter man!

Just about any LSx performance part will bolt to a 5.3, so long as you make sure you have the required complimentary parts, for example, I don't think the truck intake manifold works with the corvette fuel rails.

Re: upgrades for 5.3

Guys, since this is not an installation in an S10, I'm closing it.
