    If they are the same style (both DBC or both DBW) then yes. But I have to ask why would you? They are the exact same size for all the motors (4.8, 5.3, 6.0) so theres no performance gain to be had by swapping them out unless theres an issue with the one you currently have.

    I should also add that theres 2 different DBW TB's an early one and a later one so double check that the plugs on them are the same too
