Thoughts on Chevy 5.7L 3500
I am currently looking at a 2003 Chevy Vortec 5.7L 3500. Do you guys have any thoughts on this engine. I believe 2003 was the last year they used the 5.7L before moving to the 5.3. From what I hear the 5.7 might be a little more reliable in the long term then the 5.3 but the gas mileage will be worse. Do you all agree?
Does anyone have any idea what I should expect for the gas mileage. I am a little concerned since its a 5.7 and a 3500 so the gearing is probably working against good gas mileage.
