Hey guys, this is my first post on here, my name is Alex. and I've got a question.
I'm getting ready to buy a 1996 dodge ram 1500 with a stock 5.2 liter engine, the only problem is the engine's heads are cracked. Now I have a used 5.9 liter engine that I bought for $500. And my question is,
(can i replace the old 5.2 with the 5.9 using the same computer in the truck without modification?)
or what kinda hoops am i going to have to jump through to make this work?
Engine: 1998-2001 360ci (5.9L) Magnum V8 245hp(standard), 250hp(Sport package)
Rep Power: 19
Purchase one from a trans rebuilding shop . Daaco is a quality rebuilt convertor . Shouldn't cost no more than $125.00 with your core . Just tell them you need a convertor for a 20?? Dodge Ram with a 5.9 Gas engine .
hey guys i kno that i was goin to put a 5.9 liter in my 96' but, the used 5.9 was screwed up including the heads so i just got some remaned heads to replace both cracked heads on the 5.2. oh well lol i still love the power and the sound of the 5.2. ill have pics up soon.
