What's your budget?

Do you have a power goal?

Lifter tick is normal, typical LS thing. Even with a new cam and lifters, it'll still tick and clack.

The fuel pressure test port is on the fuel rail, sometimes it's just a bard on the passenger side if I remember right.

Yeah it will run no problem with factory injectors. Like you said just for getting it going is no problem, they won't support much power though being only 38lb/hr.

I have not heard of them making the 4L60e any different when put it behind a V6.

If anything I'd think it'd have a better chance at survival with less power but they all seem to meet the same...

Fuel pump is fine on a just a cam swap and engine size increase. Factory pump can support a 6.0 with a mild cam just fine.

Anything in the 212/218 with a mild LSA of 114ish will do what you want on a stock stall converter. BTR, texas speed or comp cams all sell camshafts like that. Even slightly smaller will get a okay...

Add a nice resonator back in, that should tone down the rasp a ton when using the stock muffler. That or a decent sized cat will act as a nice resonator in most cases.

The 2500 frame is nothing like the 1500 frame. The cross member is not in the same place for the transmission. That why you have to chop it and move it/weld it to fit.

If it was me I would be a brand new GM MAP sensor, nothing ebay or from On3.

Find a real GM cobalt MAP sensor or go purchase a EFI Source 3 BAR MAP sensor, both of those are for sure to be good.
