The 5.3 (5300) is a highly capable engine, great for mid size engine compartments and is considerably smaller than the 6.0. The 4.8 and the 5.3 share the same block but the internals; crank, rods, are not. The intake is taught and ready for climbing. A taller plenum design / tunnel ram effect, allows the air to hit the intake ports, yielding efficient power, with a snap of torque.
