Changing the water pump is a piece of cake. To change the pump (on the 3.1) 1.Disconnect the water hose from the pump, catch the coolant below with a wide drip pan. 2.Using a serpentine belt removal tool (long thin rod with a 3/8 inch socket) loosen the belt tensioner and remove the belt from the alternator 3.Remove the 4 bolts from the water pump pulley. You will have to use a long screw driver to hold the pulley in place while you turn the bolts. Put the screw driver between 2 other bolts to keep it from turning. 4.Pop the pulley off. You may have to pry it off with that same screw driver if it's stuck on there. Be sure not to bend the pulley though. 5.Remove 5 bolts holding the pump in place, scrape off the old gasket, put on the new gasket with some sort of gasket dressing or sealant and pop in the new water pump. It only goes in one way or the holes won't line up.

When facing the engine, you'll notice two small fittings on either end of the valve cover. The PCV valve is the one on your left. Unscrew the plasic cap and replace the valve.

There should be a diagram under the hood or in your manual that will show you the path that the belt should follow.

You can put a 5.7 in a truck that held a 4.7, but it is a tight fit. You also have to replace the radiator if you do this. It is a difficult swap, but possible.

Remove the wiring from the top of the EGR then unbolt it at the bottom of the EGR system. You may need to replace the gasket after replacing the EGR itself
