The 03' Ram to '03~06' Hemi swap is one of the easiest swaps that can be done. Even the wiring , harnesses and ECM , is a plug and play swap. The only thing that won't work when you're done is the Cruise control .

The 4.7L makes more power than the ol' LA's (its what I refer them to cause they originally started as LA motors). But I don't know as anyone that has surpassed 250K on a 4.7L. I find the 4.7L to be a cheap motor, sure has good pick up and power...they don't last long. You can do that easily on the 360's and 318's.

I don't see why you would want to down grade or just do a Hemi swap.
Keep it Mopar, buy Mopar Parts.

I am completely disgusted every time I think about having to take a distributor cap off of one of these trucks -Screamintrashcan
