Hemi Ramcharger?

Hey Guys,

I have a '93 Ramcharger, 360, A518, 9.25 3.55 gears with 156,000 miles going in for surgury this Saturday. It's getting an '07 5.7 and matching tranny with 1,000 miles on them. Tomorrow I'm picking up an '05 computer to operate them. I won't be enabling the MDS system as I don't think it'll be much use in a truck with brick like aerodynamics...

I know nothing about the Hemi, okay, almost nothing, has 50% more power than the worn out 360 it'll replace. Are there any maintenance items to know about? How about fuel requirements? Does it need premium or will it run okay on regular? Anything else I need to know about?

Can I be a member of HTC with just the engine and tranny?

Thanks for any info and advice!
Robert

If its hemi powered, and in the form of a truck... your in



ummmm.. 1st off, the 07 hemi your transplanting. Is it out of a wrecked truck? Or a crate motor? controller from an 05, may or may not work completely with the 07 engine harness... some modifications will be needed.

Dodge says 89 octane. Super chips has a setting to allow 87 to be ran safely.
Maintenance, same as any other.

Good luck, and take lots of pictures! This should be a challenging, and interesting build.

I may be wrong but I don't think that '05 computer will work with the '07 motor. The '05 did not have mds and the coil pack setup is different. You may end up having spark problems. Suggest a '06 or '07 computer.

Sounds sweet. Always nice to see transplants getting done. It really fools people.

Welcome aboard BigIronRam - we're glad you joined us! Good luck on the transplant - and as others stated, I would stay with the same year on all your hardware.
