Default 5.3 swap into S10

I was thinking about doing a LS1 swap into my 2000 4.3/auto S10, but I've decided to just go with a 5.3 swap.

What all is needed besides engine,trans, wiring, and ECU?

Will the 5.3 truck accessories work? I have heard they will and I have heard they wont... Can someone confirm this?

I want to figure out exactly what I need before I start buying it.

Thanks!
Matt

Most of it is BS about rear ends. And Im not doing an LS1 swap, I need to know everything involved with a 5.3 swap....

-Notch the frame?
-5.3 accessories work? (Ive heard they will and they wont)


Im trying to figure out exactly what I need to do to get a 5.3 in and running, plain and simple.

Again read through the 52 pages and LOOK at the pics and the people...there are people in that 52 pages who are running the 5.3 with truck acc. And a 5.3 swap is the same as ANY LSx swap...same issues getting the motor in and such. So read and listen to those who have done LSanything swaps.
