That was part of the reasoning behind going with the 05. Though nearly any vin code D would work, however some places don't pay attention when you say you need a VIN code D Hemi. I was going to go with an 04 so I could know it would work with my truck, but 04 and 05 are similar enough that the wiring harnesses should work well. I don't think I'll have the problems the 02 guys had where I would need the wiring harness and body wiring to get it working(or figuring out other internal wiring). Fortunately for me, I had the 4 plug computer anyway, so no TCM. I know the 04 could have either the 4 plug or 3 plug with separate TCM.
I am thinking that I may have to redo the lines for the AC, and possibly get a new radiator. Though admittedly I am half tempted to do that anyway as radiators are relatively cheap and I live in Phoenix, AZ where temps get up to 120-125(on occasion upwards of 130, which the news never reports accurately, but the anually calibrated thermometer doesn't lie). Last thing I want is an overheating engine. Obviously hoses as well, but that's a given.
If this works out well, next project is stuffing a hemi in my girlfriend's sebring
Just kidding... Gonna go for the V10
