Default 392 Hemi engine cover for 5.7 Hemi????

So since I got my challenger, I've found out about a few mods for it and it got me to wondering if I could possible do the same mod to my Ram. I had seen on challenger forum about changing the engine cover (as we all know that the 5.7 Hemi cover isn't the greatest). I switched my 5.7 cover to the 392 half covers and think it turned out pretty good. Now it's got me to wondering if I could do the same for my ram... has anyone tried this? I'm going to see if this is even possible the coming week when I'm off. If it works, I'll try and give a detail thread on parts, prices, part numbers and what needs to be done.

From this (challenger)...

This is how it looks now on my Ram

Yeah the 4G 5.7 cover is not really their best design so i would def' try doing it. If not then you can fall back on half covers like moparornocar72 did for his 4G.

Love my 6.1 coil covers. Def' cleans up the wire harness and coils.

You guys should email 3G customs. They don't plan on doing any R&D for our trucks because of "lack of interest"

here is a link to the hemi engine covers that they offer, not bad, $130 with cut.
http://www.3gcustomz.com/newreleasedparts
still think we need to email them and spark more interest for other parts and options.

This is the email I recieved from 3G customs when I asked about their expanded product line...

Hey Dustin,


We would like to but interest is far and few and in between. We even had a friend start a thread on a related forum and the interest just wasn't there. It takes a lot of time and money to develop a new product line and if we had the demand it would be a no brainer. I think some day but not right now.


Thanks,
Gary
