Engine swap question
 
I am about to do an engine swap on my 96 Ram 1500 4x4 with a 5 speed....It has the 5.2 magnum motor.....I am wanting to put in the magnum 5.9 motor (GAS) in....the only difference is that the motor came from a 97 Ram with the auto tranny.....What will I need to switch out besides the computer.....like clutch, flywheel, flex plate...is it all interchangeable????

Yes all of it should be interchangable

Make sure the back of the crankshaft will accept a pilot bearing . The 5.9 is externally balanced so you will need a flywheel for a 5.9 . The computer will work . It will need the flash for a 5.9 . From what I can find everything else looks the same . If it were me I would install the bigger diameter clutch (12") thats available .
