looking for a late model big block chevy for swap

I'm looking for a complete turn key big block engine with all accessories for a 96 1 ton dually with a diesel currently in it. What does it take to do the swap and where can I get it all in one shot? What do I need for the engine as far as electronics and fuel managment, fuel tank ect? I would trade my complete diesel stuff if anyone wants it as well. My e-mail is [email protected] Phone is 270-556-5340.

Fudge! I have a 2000 vortec 454 complete with computer and everything including 4l80e auto. But as of a few weeks ago I tore it apart to start rebuilding it for my truck. Oh well.

Yeah, shipping that combo completely across the US would've been fun too. Jason, you got that on eBay right? That's just about the only suggestion I've got for finding one. Maybe a wrecking yard that deals with late model vehicles involved in accidents?

Here's a 2003 496 that has been rolled over:
