bcjjones is on a distinguished road
Default 318 PCM vs 360 PCM

I recently switched out my 96 dodge ram 1500 standard from a 5.2 to a 5.9. Runs perfectly, and has a ton more power then my 5.2. But i did keep my 5.2 computer and my 5.2 injectors. I have the 5.9 injectors that came with the engine as well as the wiring harness, and I just found a 5.9 Computer for 50 bucks. My engine seems to run with tons of power, but would there be any beneifit to switching the two over? Not sure how big of a difference there are between the two?

keep the 5.9 PCM with the 5.9 engine and 5.2 PCM with 5.2 Engine. they made the computers for the engine for a reason. so it works properly.
