Default 318 swap

Hello everyone!

Much like the person below me posted, am interested in swapping a 318 for a 360. Am just worried about the differences.
I have a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 5.2L Magnum, automatic transmission. The engine actually froze and busted the block due to someone adding water instead of antifreeze…and I have had a difficult time finding a replacement for it. I have however come across a 5.9L out of a 1994 Dodge van but am worried about the differences in year as well as the larger engine size. Would I be able to replace the 1995 318 with the 1994 360? If so what has to be swapped out to make it work? Or if not, what’s different about them?
Thanks in advance for any help

With the motor coming out of a van , you will need to verify that the oil pan and bolt on accessories are the same . The basic motor is of the same design so it will bolt right in . The 5.9 is a externally balanced engine so you will need to change out the torque convertor or you will have a vibration that you won't beable to get rid of . The computer from the 5.2 will work on the 5.9 , but the basic specs will need to be reflashed for the 5.9 engine .
