Help with engine swap ...

Hopefully, this is the right spot for my post ...

I’ve sold my ‘04 all-black Ram 1500 and ‘04-‘05 Rumble Bee is my ‘Next Project’.

I want to do an engine swap with a compatible (pre-2013?) 392 Hemi and read an old 2014 post here that it was an ‘easy swap’ (post by ‘Fasthemiram05’ I think ...). I have a local custom shop willing to do the work and (so I don’t have to spend $$$ to have them start from scratch and ‘reinvent the wheel’) would like to find out what such a project involves (tranny too? Rewiring and new electronics? etc.).

I know this would be a ‘big bucks‘ project and that there are other better ways to gain power (which is not really my goal) and wouldn’t really be ‘worth it’ dollar wise ... still I want to go ahead with it ...

Any thoughts? Any leads? Any ‘You need to call ___ ?

Thanks!

Not sure what you are wanting.. there are more than a few here that have 5.7 stroker motors that are roughly 392, commonly 397ci.

Engine swap ...

Hi Red Truck!

I'm looking to do a full engine swap - 5.7 to 392 - rather than stroking the 5.7 ...

So you want to drop a 392 factory engine into you older 04/05 truck

Do you have a vehicle inspection that requires plugging into the OBDII port? If so then you cannot pass the inspection. The 6.4 factory engine uses a reluctor wheel that is not compatible with the trucks PCM.

Thanks all ...

My friend has a 2011 692 that he said uses the same transmission as the '04-'05 Ram trucks (545RFE?) ... PCM, wiring, etc. would need to be reworked ...
