Default 03 hemi swap

I have a 03 4.7
Last year I snapped 2 connecting rods, ruined the block.
Of course first thought was hemi... After some research there was a lot more modifications then I thought! Including a wiring harness swap. Also with my 03 having the 5-speed (nv3500). It was recommended that the 3500 be swapped with a NV4500, what u would find in a Cummings 2500 or 3500 series pickup to handle the extra torque. As suggested, a Donner truck would be your best option to avoid curse words and extra aggravation!
