As you have stated the 03-05 coil packs have a diferent plug than the 06+. These coils use to be called 6.1 coil. Considered an upgrade by many. I would follow the harness back to it's next plug located at the rear of the engine driver's side and see if the newer harness will plug into it. If not then cut the plugs off and solder them to the old harness. This is what I did... there are two wires to each plug. One is a common ground and the other is specific to the cylinder. The other solution is to use your 03-05 coils and valve covers on the newer engine.

That’s what I was trying to figure out I don’t have the harness for the new motor

Hey guys and gals I have an issue with the new motor I put in now I have an 2005 dodge ram 2500 5.7 hemi that motor blew up I got an 2007 dodge ram 1500 with the 5.7 hemi as well. The motor is in bolted up nicely now I have a major oil like that seems its coming from up top but it runs down the left side of the bell housing and just pours out the bottom it only does it after the truck runs for about 15-20 mins. It didnt do It until after I put the rad back in and filled it does any one know what it could be? Thanks

What is the substance? Engine oil? Trans oil? Coolant?

Out of the bell housing could be a galley plug, cam back cover, or a rear main seal

Keith's right , the MDS solenoids don't need to be removed , just unplugged...
Where exactly are they located at?
