I need to replace the 6.0L engine in my 2000 Silverado; local salvage yards are telling me the donor engine must come from a 99-00 model vehicle. Is this correct? I have found an LQ4 6.0L from a 2003 Express van and was wondering if this would be compatible? Any help or clarification on this topic is appreciated. Thanks

A good salvage yard will know the best info on this. Better if it has donor vehicle info totally right down to miles and results of certain tests before they wasted any time.
One should be able to hunt thru another with as good info as that one.

Hate to say it's old now but it is. Find out as much as you can on donor. I like to know why if at all possible that is was "Junked" to begin with REAL nice if you could go see the thing!

The salvage yards are the ones that have the interchange books and they are very accurate so if they say it won't work, then you can be sure it won't work.
