Hey there man, thanks for the compliment on my truck! That's a good question about your engine swap as I didn't realize there was a non-egr engine in the years of the 4.7. Not sure if you could alleviate that by having your computer flashed to run without it to avoid the CEL on all the time if you decide to go with the non-egr. Do you already have a donor engine? I see you posted this on the board, and the best person to ask would be RamTech, he's an ASE certified Chrysler tech here and he should be able to give you some immediate feedback. I can do some research into it and see what I find.
Thanks for the welcome. your truck looks pretty slick too.... i do have a question...posted in the forums (i think) lol.... I'm replacing the engine on my 2005 Ram 1500 4.7L (blew the heads on it) once my mechanic got in to it he suggests i replace the whole engine. I've got no problem with that the question i have is there are 2 motors that can go in this truck EGR and Non-EGR and the EGR engine is the one i need are the engines interchangeable? can i use a non-EGR engine? is there a access panel on the non-EGR engine you can remove and install a EGR valve?... any help will be greatly appreciated.
