Talking want to get a spare bulder

i was looking to get a spare builder long block. not to tough right? well im thinking of the idea of switching the 5.2 with a 5.9. Now this is the question how interchangeable are intake computer components. seems that they would be with the obd2 set up. but what of the NV3500 manual trans? pully set up? valve covers? ya know external parts? almost all all of my expiriance with dodge is pre obd2 and mainly mid 80's early 90's 4 cyl and 1 6 cyl. as for the 8's ive delt with untill now have all been carb. So I know it can be done just want to know of ros that I might encounter. thanks

i do believe mostly everything is interchangeable but you will need a new fly wheel and harmonic balancer seeing as the 318 is internally balanced and the 360 is externally balanced
