Motor Switch 2001
 
I just bought this truck and it burns a fair amount of oil.
It has the 5.9 and it is a lot cheaper to put a drop in then to try and fix it.
I was just wondering if there is any way to put a 5.7 hemi in it without too much modifying.
I don't have much experience with fuel injections but I am thinking that the electronics won't match up?

I know that the 2002 1500's had 5.9's,
Thanks for any help.

Sounds like you have a bad intake manifold gasket . Theres a plate on the bottom of the intake manifold that is notorious for gasket failure . May want to look down the throttle body , with the engine off and see if you can see oil laying in the bottom of the manifold .
