I have to put this through it paces more before i take it anywhere. I have been battling an over heating issue. i have a new water pump and 160* thermostat coming meow. my cooling system is perfectly plumbed and raidiator is big enought for this 5.3. My water pump is the original one that came with the motor and has been weeping out of the weep hole since we got it started. The thermostat is also original. I have been wanting to do hanging tree sometime. I have my 2 seater still. Is yours back together after your motor woes?
