Talking New Hemi swap? Can it be done?

I can get a new hemi motor and trans dirt cheap. Is it possible to do in a 2nd gen ram? Motor trans computer harness and exhaust? My tranny is done and I need to know if this is possible. Thanks everyone

you would have to get the wiring, computer, & transmission, as well as the 5.7 Hemi engine. Then it may never pass smog laws, if you could ever get it to run right & even then it may still light up your dash warning lights

a 5.9 basically uses all the same things as the 5.2, IF i recall correctly

hotrodlane.cc has a plug and play harness. and they offer motor mount adapters that may work. other wise they are not to hard to make .your trans will bolt up to the hemi minus one hole. you may have to use a jeep brake booster for clearance. the swap has been done in 1st and second generation dakotas

the transmission bolt pattern is the same?!?

That means a 6 speed out of a challenger would bolt right up to my 5.9l?
