Rhonan2011 is on a distinguished road

I looked down in the intake while i had the throttle body off and it didnt have any oil down there, as it wasnt puddled up or real wet down in the intake and i tapped on the belly pan with a long screwdriver and it definatly wasnt a stock thin flimsy pos that dodge put on them, it looked like the hughes aluminum piece you can get. So i marked that out. And it has a new cat converter. Bc my dad asked me that question too. AND BTW THE TRUCK WONT START AT ALL!!,, since i cleaned and polished the throttle body and put a new iac valve on it then took it for a test drive, and this was in 2 miles time. I was wandering if since its a high milage 318 if it possibly jumped time? And im also wandering, i have my old 95 ram 1500 4x4 still. I wrecked it but the 360 omly has 30xxx miles on it. Im really wanting to swap it into my 96 1500 4x4, but my 95 was an automatic and my 96 is a 5 speed. I really love the 5 speed compared to the auto and dont wanna lose it in favor of the auto. But if i put the 360 in the 96 will the computer from the 95 auto work in my 96?? Due to the tranny difference, and the difference from the obd1 in the 95 to the obd2 in the 96? And if not can someone please refer me to a place to get the ECM i need to finally get this done. And also anything else i need to change so i can do it right and be done with that particular project the first time.
