The money your going to spend getting it installed, tuned, transmission work because your current tranny wont hold up, new PCM's, TCM's man the list is alot more then just a regular motor swap.

It can but you will have to change the torque converter etc. Just too many variables to take into consideration and money to do this swap, longevity wise anyway.

I would go with a stroker build, over a sawp. Might be better option and less headache.

That's one the places that does that. http://www.shophemi.com/c-457-57-hem...7-stroker.aspx

Forgot to mention, but a supercharger could be a less expensive and easier route.

Do you know what kind of gains might come with this upgrade?

There is a guy that has installed a 6.1 in a limited when his 5.7 hydro-locked. You should be able to find a picture of him on the Off-Road section.
