Default Difference between 5.3 and 5.7 engines...

The aluminum block engines that is. Are they pretty much the same block? Could a 5.3 be resleeved to the same dimensions?
What is the respective bore , stroke, etc...?

Right now the 5.3 is iron vs. the aluminum 5.7 but I heard a rumor of aluminum 5.3 in the near future. Here are some links for a few specs. http://www.gm.com/automotive/gmpower...ec5300_lm7.htm http://www.gm.com/automotive/gmpower.../gmpow/ls1.htm

They have announced a new LM5 5.3 aluminum vortec that will go in the 2003 Trailblazer. But not the Avalanche at this time.

Looks like the bore is the same... So potentially the newer 5.3 could probably be resleeved if someone wanted to.

What are the relative costs of each motor? I did an internet search for 5.3L crate motors but didn't find anything. I'm asking because I had a thread discussing the feasability of using the 5.3L in the future F-body as a midrange performance offering and I wanted to know if there'd be a significant price savings.

I don't know the costs.

I have a 2000 silvy 5.3L 4x4 that I want to twin turbo, and convert to AWD what's some good advice as to heads needed a a trans that'll hold at least 1000 horses, and I figure Dana 80s will hold up to that?
