I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 with a burnt up 318 im going to pull the whole engine and replace it with another and was considering the 360 has anyone done this? If so will the bolt up be the same can i still use the same tranny and will I need a new computer? any advice towards this would be greatly appreciated

Should have no problem with the change up. The 5.2 and 5.9 are both small blocks so the motor mounts will match, the wiring harness will match, and the transmission will hook up fine. Only change needed is the ecm (computer) so you will need a 360 ecm for that engine. Make sure you get the flex plate from the 5.9 since are externally balance, 5.2 are not.

even the stock computer will work also until you felt like upgrading.
