It would depend if you got a long block or a short block, but if it where me I would have it all done by 1 company so it will be matched and balanced, therefore I'd go long block! You could probably fine a nice used one on LXForums.
The most basic support to make it work N/A. Your going to need the following.
To get the most out of it.
- 6.1 intake manifold
- 6.1 exhaust manifolds or LT's
(assuming you use Eagle or Apache heads they will bolt right up to the 6.1 intake/exhaust mani's) so no adapters needed. Just make sure they are machined to match the block (combustion chamber bore)!
- EGR block-off plate for your 5.7 block (depends on heads 6.1 heads do not need this)
No matter what you do get a catch-can!
There are lots of ways to do it and things that are needed would change as you change parts but that is the basics.
