95dodgeV10 is on a distinguished road

almost certain your 318 tranny wont work cause the auto for the v10 is only available for the cummins as well and i dnt believe your 318 tranny isnt rated for the torque of the v10 so it wouldnt survive too long if you drive it hard alot. as far as weight youre looking at about another 250-300 lbs. the v10 bone dry is about 800lbs. the issue with getting a lowered look by using your old springs could cause the old springs to fail and sag due to the unintended weight constantly being there. other things you mmight need is radiator overflow tank v10 radiator (its about twice the size of the 318) not too sure about other parts.
