The 5 liter (305) was a good motor. You'll do fine with it once you take care of the little things.
The sheet metal yes, is 88-98, but the grills and headlamps are 88-92 1/2, then they went to composites on the Silverados.
5.0'* are **** in a truck, they all are nototorious for seal problems and most were under powered for the application.....Now when it came to the 5L being in the Firebirds, Camaro, and so on.....Still had the leaks, but definantly didn't have the power issue
