    I need some help finding a replacement computer for my 1990 W150. Dodge part number is 04429546. Mother MOPAR, in its infinite wisdom, discontinued it three years ago. Any suggestions on a source?

    I recently replaced the stock air cleaner with a 14x3 aftermarket air cleaner. I notice that the stock cleaner had a part in the bottom pan that I believe I've identified as a temperature sensor. Is this necessary to replace in the aftermarket cleaner? I just want to be sure I don't hurt the...

    Hi. I am going to be rebuilding my truck soon and need to know what possible manual transmissions I should look into. It is a 1983 d150 with a 318 that I'm not sure just how big and bad I'm going to build yet, and an automatic transmission right now. I've been looking at the np435 but it seems...

    I just bought an old sweptline and it has a later model 318 transplanted. The guy said it came from an 89-91 150 but could not remember. I need to find/buy the power steering pump and bracket so I can add power steering but do not know if they are the same for those years or where I can find...

    I recently bought an '88 150 with a 318. The truck in very rough shape, but runs great. However it takes an age for the high idle to calm down. After digging around I found that the wiring for my choke heater isn't attached to anything. I jumped it to the battery to see if it works and it warmed...
  7. Performance Mods - Engine - 5.2 Liter V8
    Hey, I just got a 1982 Dodge D150 with a 318 in it and was wondering what cheap ways I can get more horsepower out of it. As far as I know, it's all stock. The only things that have been changed is that it was lifted 3", the 318 has been rebuilt, but it still looks stock. Also, glass packs have...
  8. Performance Mods - Engine - 5.2 Liter V8
    I just recently did a V6-318 swap, which was a nightmare by the way, on my 98 1500. Much better than the V6. I had the 318 completly rebuilt with a bigger computer friendly cam and also balanced. But I'm kinda greedy and want more power! Been thinking lately of putting on some performance heads...

    So, my '85 D150, with the 318 5.2L motor dies once it has warmed up. I assumed it was the O2 sensor, so I went looking in the exhaust manifold. No O2 sensor?? There are only three intrusions into the manifold or pipes. The first two are ports for the Air Injection System. The third is on the...

    Basically, I needed to know if the magnum engines (318, 360) will swap into a 1987 Dodge Ram W150 that has a 318? And if so, what should I expect in the way of new parts and other things to make it work? Thanks in advance for replies.

    So I was thinking earlier. (that's always a bad thing) My engine still isn't fixed, let alone knowing what the actual problem is, would it be Cheaper to stick a new engine in? Plus this way I could get a 360 instead of my 318. So, what all goes into an engine swap? Will a 360 plug into where...

    Truck starts pretty good, idles fine but when i give it hard gas (at idle) itll backfire through the carb or if i slowly give it gas till 4500-5000 rpm and let off the gas quickly itll try to die. Doesnt seem to really be a problem because i just give it more gas. I was thinking accl pump...

    I just typed about 1,000 words describing the background. During the typing, I took a phone call and when I came back this forum had logged me out and I lost my post. I do not have the heart to do that again. I'm sorry. I have a 1985 D150 Royal SE with a 318 and a Holley 2bbl 2280. I have...
  14. 5.9L V8 Specific Topics
    I have recently swapped out a blown 360 in my 95 dodge ram 2500 for a 318 in good working order. The 318 is out of a 97 1500. It ran well at first, but now it is having idle problems. I am running the 318 off the old ECU from the 360. Is that causing the problem? I am getting a loud...
