Just a work of caution, make sure you read about the routing of the plug wires. If I remember correctly, plug wire 7 and 9 need to be separated or it can cause problems.

Swapping to a new Hemi

Has anyone replaced the V10 with a late model Hemi, or know of a link where they have? I'm looking at maybe replacing mine for better power and fuel economy. I know I could just sell mine and buy a...

After market tach

My 99 came without a factory tach. Using it mostly to tow my travel trailer I'd like to install one. Anyone have a recommendation for a good aftermarket tach for the V10?

Thanks

Not sure what the OP found but sure sounds like a rod to me. If your checking one out check the oil for foreign partials. Just rub some between your fingers, if it feel anything but smooth then...

I have to agree with you 99 V10. I have a 99 also but it's a 2wd QC. Love it and it pulls my 26' travel trailer with no problem. But I do have a question for you. You said you get 400hp and 700...

Fairly sure it's not an exhaust leak but, could be an O2 sensor. I hadn't changed them out. I did have to do the spacer on the down stream O2 to clear the Check Engine light but used to old sensor.

Running rich

Lately my 99 V10 has been running real rich. You can smell it every time you idle it for a couple minutes. Is there a custom tuner or chip to lean these motors out? It doesn't have a cat anymore but...
