gunny I think it can be done. Might present some challenges with electronics/electrics but mechanicaly, almost a direct bolt in job. If you do it, let us know how it turned out and any unusual challenges.

If I was in your shoes, I'd go for it.

mantan Cams, motronic, and fuel injectors are diff. I got the 05 cams on my 02 last yr
and along with the Power commander, it feels the same as an 05. Replacing
the motronic might be problematic (canbus stuff) but the engine itself is doable.

Any thoughts on whether or not this is worth the trouble?

I would check with one of the hot rod shops for compatibility. If necessary get the 05 motronic, the 05 motor mods are worth it. Check with Rhine West in Texas. Bolt on procedure.

black1200lt George,
It can not be done. The '05 will not work for the '01 LT. DAMHIK!
If you go back and check all of the write-up on my '01 you will see what the problem is.
Good luck,
