Ive been looking on the market to by a 5.3 LS4 engine thats in the Newer models 06-09 SS. i want to put this engine in my 04 LS take out my 3.8 seires 2...What would i have to do? its possible right? would the motor mounts line up right? would it be a straight bolt on? I need a V8 and im going to make it a V8 because i cant stand the dam Dodges and there Hemi's.

it'd be easier to to a SS top swap (heads blower etc) than a v8 swap, youd need basically the whole cradle (engine tran pcm tcm) then youd have to find a way to get the pcm to talk to the bcm and thats not even getting into the fact that the v8 SS's are drive by wire... you'll see similar numbers w/ a gen III blower, 3.4 pulley and light mods (high 13 sec 1/4 times) for about $1000 as opposed to trying to get the v8 to work in your car. Theres a thread in the 7th gen discussion somewhere about what all you need to do a topswap. Morad parts co. sells top swap kits for about 800 IIRC
