: ? on buying a northstar engine

Okay, so i am thinking about doing some custimization on a chevy colorado, in which part of it will be swapping a V8. I have thought about doing the Ls1 swap, which yeilds a lot of power, but also going to be expensive, then there was the 5.3 truck engine which is also a version of the LS1 but it is an iron block. I have looked and looked numerous places and havent been able to find the northstar LH2 engines for sale, not from GM or anywhere. Is there any place that i can purchase one, or do i have to get EXTREMELY lucky and hope that a XLR or that new SUV just ends up at a local junkyard? i know the swap will be very complicated and just as expensive as the LS1, but it will be wayyyy more unique, i was also thinking that 5 speed auto in there as well...any help would be much appreciated
