Ok this is a good friend of mine's 1997 6.0 s10, we first swapped a 2005 escalade 6.0 in it last summer just a stock motor pretty much with a ls6 cam nothing to special but ended up running a 12.95 at the track on some ET streets so this winter he tore the truck back down and started rebuilding the motor and building more power. He started out by milling the heads with a valve job and a bunch of porting has a ls6 intake now with 60lb injectors upgraded fuel pump some other motor work im sure he will chime in and tell you everything. painted up a bunch of stuff cleaned up the wiring harness and cleaned the interior up a bunch. Ill let the pics speak for them selves.

Na always been set on a truck with a ls motor just didnt know when i wanted to start building it, im gonna buy the truck when i get to my unit in 5 months then lower it 5/6 with sliders drive it with the tutu till i get enough leave to drop in a motor.
-spare tire cross-member removed
-box metal welded in
-new leaf spring sliders
-well all rebuilt again blew up another rebuilt trailblazer converter last summer sending aluminum through the trans thus total destruction...but all new and new torque converter..( true gm not rebuilt )
there is alot more but i don't have the time to type it all out lol
There are actually several place's were you can pick them up from, you just need to make sure that they are the GM style eyelet leaf spring slider. Alot of dirt track shop's like speedway motor's and several other's have them in stock.
BTW update on this thing it spun a rod bearing this year and the motor is getting tore down to be rebuilt, also it's not going into the same truck he is picking up another Stan cab with a 3/4 and a 2.5 inch body drop. Keep an eye on this for updates!
