If I had used my original block, and crank, it would have cost me about $300 less (dumb mistakes). I know exactly what is in my engine, as well.

I found another small quirk...the Vortec heads have a higher exhaust port, and the headers I used were designed for the stock LO5 heads. So, the headers moved up a little (about an inch), which is just enough to make the spark plugs a PITA to install. I can only get a socket on 4 of them, and the others must be tightened with an open end or box end wrench. #7 and 8 must be tightened from under the car, and #8 is just above the starter, so I have to reach in from the back.
