cool thanks for the info, yeah interesting that they would have an engine by two different names and yet be almost totally the same... Ok so I gather based on your post that is never a worry about any signifigant differences between a magnum and a power tech that will cause me any issues in mounting maybe say 5.7 in the 03 if it will fit that is. I have a re-manufacturer/ machine shop that can handle all my needs but it will be necessary to find out some info first from all of you in the know about these type of change overs. I know I am increasing size considerably but yet if torque converter and welding new motor mounts is all that it is for the major part, then I see it as worth it because I would like to hold on to my truck forever if possible... Lack of 4.7l support is kind of a crappy underhanded thing to do but I understand we all need to make a dime
