    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.

    Dodge Ram Detailing and General Maintenance Forum
    Ok people, given my upcoming 5.9 overhaul, I decided I'd best get some knowledge. I've stripped and rebuilt engines over the years but everyone is different and it's nice to know specifics from experienced people.
