Overall the 6.1Ls hold up better than the 5.7L ones do when there's more power. With the number that have been swapped in the LX community for this very reason and there are very few issues with the 6.1L timing set. Not saying they're perfect, but they have an extra tensioner leaf than the 5.7L ones.
