Default engine swap

ok for starters i have a 2005 dodge 1500 quad cab 4x4 auto tranny with a 4.7l V8. i have had nothin but problems with this motor in the past few months and im getting tired of the 4.7l. i am thinking about swaping in a 318. i figured someone out there would atleast have an idea of what all it would take and what i would need for this swap. i know i will need a new ECU for the 318 if it is fuel injected. would the 318 bolt up to my auto tranny that i have right now? i got to thinking would a fuel injected or carb. motor be better? if i go fuel injected i would keep everything the same just change the motor. if i go with a carb. i would probably go with a 727 with all the goodies. whats your opinion on the fuel milage for both and what would you do if it was your daily driver?
any input or sugestions will be appreciated
