Had a 1981 D150, 318 with 727 trans, 4bbl Holley carb, dual exhaust, headers, bumped up cam and the odometer quit working somewhere around the 170K mark and that was in 1999, sold it in 2008. Never saw the track with it, so no real idea what the numbers would have been, but, much to the chagrin of my ex, saw my fair share of kills with it and I still miss that truck!!! Made a great sleeper since I never did anything to change the stock appearance, other than losing the grille and not replacing it or the hood ornament that someone else thought they needed more than I did. Ran whatever oil I could afford since I had a 9 qt. oil pan. I would have it still today, but my dad talked me into selling it after I bought my new truck. Anyhoo, had a lot of fun with it and I just couldn't kill it lol, it took the abuse like a champ!

I have a 99 ram 1500 4x4 short bed, with a limited slip rear diff, this truck always has gotten about 16mpg, now that I am running Amsoil, instead of Royal purple I am getting 18 to 20mpg's and I'm talking city driving. My truck has a little over 160 thousand miles on it. I live in the State of Maine where it is not always nice weather and I can tell you one thing, I woulden't own any other truck. My 318 even small pulls more then its fair share, along with giving me the confedence to go to Ny and back without a hicup. The only mods I have really done is my up country Rancharo suspention, and my Magnaflow exshaust system. I really say you should look into amsoil full synthetic its about 8 bucks a quart but has an oil life of 10,000 miles in which I change mine ever 8 thousand to be safe. 5w30 amsoil.

In the 2001 12-passenger B2500 Ram Van, the 5.2L/318 Magnum engine just rolled 113,000. In the past year, I've done more mods from reading the forums than the entire time I've had it.

The funny thing is, nobody knows that a full size van can pack that much power when they think taking off at a light they can get around me. LOL Sure some of the Ram Vans have the wimpy 3.9L, but the 5.2L/318cid Magnum turns heads.

318 runs like hell though i ve heard of so many people with 200,000 miles on them . wish i had more balls when i hit the gas but having a motor you know if you take care of will keep going and going is cool with me. i have magnaflow exhaust and a intake still slow but it sounds good

I had a 99 ram 1500 short box with a 318 with 312*** miles when it went... The motor had never seen any kind of tear down or rebuild... Only things I ever did were the fallowing

- JBA ceramic headers
- K&N intake
- Valvoline regular 10w30 motor oil every 3000 miles
- Mobil 1 oil filter at 3k as well
- Flushed the Rad every 45k miles
- Changed the valve cover gaskets at day one when I bought it when it had 89,219 miles
- Kept the rev's around 1,500-2,500 daily driven
- Went mudding once a month with it, and let it rev 4-5k for a couple secs

really about it.. think having a 5spd help prolong it's life.. what killed it was a wet road and a rookie driver who blew the motor.. I give mopar props for such a good motor tho!
