I cracked the HEMI in my '04 2500 with a NV4500 vin code D on Friday. I've been searching locally for a low mileage take out but haven't had any luck. I live in Long Beach, Ca. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

the Hemi engines had several applications
5.7 Hemi engineThe '5.7 L Hemi' was released for model year 2003 on the Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks to replace the Magnum 5.9 engine. It also replaced the 8.0L V-10 engine in the heavy duty Ram. As of 2004 it was the only available gasoline engine in the Ram Heavy Duty. Chrysler has since made the 5.7 L Hemi available in all models of the 2004 Dodge Ram, Dodge Durango, the 2005 Chrysler 300C, Dodge Magnum R/T, Jeep Grand Cherokee, the 2006 Dodge Charger R/T, and the 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T. For Challenger, the 6 speed version will not feature MDS.
The 5.7 L (345 cu in) Hemi in the Ram delivered 345 hp (257.3 kW) and 375 lb·ft (508 N·m), but 340 hp (253.5 kW) and 390 lb·ft (529 N·m) for the 300C and Magnum R/T, which is exactly 100 hp (74.6 kW) more than the old 5.9 engine. It is a 90-degree V8, 2-valve pushrod design like the past LA engines, displacing 5,654 cc (345 cu in), with a bore of 99.5 mm (3.92 in) and a stroke of 90.9 mm (3.58 in).
The 5.7 L Hemi is made at Chrysler's Saltillo Engine plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico.
The Hemi was on the Ward's 10 Best Engines list for 2003 through 2007, and again in 2009.
