Give me a hand with this!

I plan on doing a chevy 5.3 now (finally, I hope for real) and just want to know what other parts I would need. I really just need a list of every part I would need so I can be ready when I go to the pick and pull next month. I'm a Newbie to dropping in an engine but will have alot of help from my father who has dropped nearly a thousand into classic muscle cars. I would ask him for help but alas, he lives in Korea!

Also planning on getting a new radiator from novak conversions but would really consider anything else that will work great, for less on my wallet.

thanks for reading!

Auto or manual transmission?

The lsx is a fairly easy motor to standalone. It will run with just it's wiring harness. So depending on what you want to work and not work, you need the engine, wiring harness and pcm. If you get a system equipped with PATS, you'll need either HPtuners or a Chevy dealer to disable pats or it won't start.
