4.2L V6 Swap to 5.3L V8

EDIT: I meant to say I have a 4.2L I6 Engine.

I am looking at a possible good deal. There is a shop near me that my father-in-law knows the owner. Well in the shop they have a v8 motor from a newer model suburban probably around 2004+ I believe it is a 5.3L v8. I am wondering to the best of your knowledge would that motor be able to go into and replace my 4.2L Inline 6? Just curious, I know you may need to know more info. But if there is anything I need to look for, aka engine codes written somewhere on the motor, etc let me know what I need to look for.
