Anyone use any 6.1l parts on thier 5.7?
 
Anyone use any 6.1 heads and crank on thier 5.7? seem like it'd be a cheaper upgrade if they fit, but I don't know if they do fit. I know more about chevy motors.

The 6.1L camshaft fits but they recommend beefier beehive springs/keepers, and the heads need some minor porting to fit, though I've read that they don't recommend swapping heads to the 6.1L. The 6.1L keg intake is a direct bolt on and you can port the stock heads to get the optimal smoothness as there's a small lip on the heads if you do.
