About to Purchase a LY6 (Vortec 6000): What to look for?

Afternoon everyone,

About to go down to water test an xstar with a LY6 onboard. Coming from a 5.7 Predator, what should (if anything) should I be aware of outside of your normal Engine review?

Also, I've been searching for a resource on the site for what maintenance items this engine uses as winter is coming... Is there a thread that I can't find (plugs, wires, belts, filter, dizzy, etc...)

Thanks in advance,
D2

Sit and idle for a bit and watch the temp gauge for anything above 160.

I figured as much. Its solid @160, purchased yesterday. If it ever creeps, is it the special thermostat mod that fixes it?

Best,

Sweet. Yeah, I had to add a second thermostat to my LY6 setup.
