Default 87 vs 93 Swap

Hi I am new to this forum but not new to Dodges But I have a couple of questions:
1. I have a 87 Dodge Ram with a 318 2bbl that I have just added a RV cam to and a performer dome with 600 cfm Edelbrock to wake it up. Now I just got offered a 1993 Dodge ram with a 360 Magnum for $300. Is there any quick way to confirm that it is a 360?

2. Is it worth while to try to convert the 87 over to the 93 drivetrain or modify the magnum to a carb and use it that way??

Great forum by the way.

A big Hello and a Warm Carolina WELCOME! I hope you make the most of the best RAM ForumZ on the Web!

I don't have a good answer for you, but, will invite you to use the link in my SIG to jump on the Newbie Link and introduce yourself to the rest of the group of some 23,000 members. Maybe one of them will be able to give you the right advice on the swap.
