It's never a bad idea to add an oil cooler. however, I don't know if/what kind of difference it will make on your turbo or other parts. But it will cool the oil down!

I'm also a fan of the stock (LS7) replacement lifters.
I've never had a problem running X-ER cams with .600 lift for many miles. I'm running the Lunati's now, also the same as the Morel's above lol!...

These engines you guys are talking about for $500 and less are not the same depending on where you're located in the country.

Well, no responses in a day so I'll bump it up one more time so that it doesn't waste space for too long.

Nah, you'll be fine.

I'd take extreme careful measures reinstalling your pickup tube into your oil pump. They can pinch so easy and cause major issues. Grease it up good and install it by hand...

Jesus Christ, that's ridiculous! $1,600 for R&R and $2,300 to build it?

You can thrown that away and purchase a crate engine or a big Cube long block for that price. Get the hell out of there.

I'd think a larger compressor and a mid sized A/R Turbine housing in a T3 would work fantastic on a 5.3. I've seen them on 5.7's and they light up fast and put down plenty of power.

G Atsma beat me to it. I don't see any issue what so ever.

Run it until the engine does of old age. You're well within spec.
