5 Speed 8L is on a distinguished road
Exclamation 5.2L swap with 8.0L Need advice!

I am looking for a little knowledge on the subject of swapping motors in the following Trucks.

1996 Dodge Ram 2500 V10 8.0L
Automatic Trans
2 Wheel Drive

and

2001 Dodge Ram 1500 V8 5.2L
5-Speed Man. (NV4500)
2 Wheel Drive

Is this possible?
Is there anything else I need to look into before the swap?

Hmm. Do you currently have both trucks?

If so, get to measurements! I am pretty sure set on you having to replace the transmission.

I am not the guy to help with tranny's seeing as I have never looked into them. Some guys will put in their input soon enough!

Yes I own both trucks... From what I can find V10 will bolt up with the NV4500 . I know I have to flash the ECU also.

I know the NV4500 is supposed to be one of the toughest tranny's around, but I just don't know if it can handle the extra kick. Don't take my word for it, I mean it totally might! I just am not sure. I don't know of anybody that has done the swap, but if you have both trucks, and are considering, then go for it!

Gotta love eating Hondas! Do you have pictures of the vehicles?

BY THE WAY, head on over to he "newbie check-in" Just introduce yourself and tell the others about your trucks and such, just as a proper welcome!
