The Viper engine block is aluminum, while the truck version is cast iron. As far as I know, there are no interchangeable parts between the truck and Viper engines. The truck version stays very close to it's original roots, which is a really long 360. I can't find it, but on one of the forums a guy put a V10 into late 90's Ram and did some upgrades to get about 400hp. This involved some head work, upgraded cam and custom tuning. The SCT with a custom tune worked on his.
