Engine help

My 2005 ram 2500 5.7 Hemi engine blew up, found a built one for a good price out of an 2007 ram 1500. Will it bolt up and everything or not. Thanks for the advice

As long as both engines have the same reluctor wheel count, the accessories can be removed from the original engine and bolted on the replacement engine. The change over year I believe is 09. 08 and older is 34 tooth and newer is 58 tooth.

What did the 07 engine come out of ? if it's another 2500 you are good to go, if it's out of a car/jeep the front cover needs to be changed,also you'll have the MDS to deal with, not an issue just pull the MDS solenoids out and replace with the plastic plugs.

Not sure about the 1500s in 07 if they had the MDS.

2007 had MDS also. 2003-2008.5 motors from a truck will work in your setup. The car and jeep motor will neeed a diff timing cover like stated but in the same years will work also

In that case it's only the MDS you have to deal with, the front cover is the same as your 2500.

The solenoids are a b!tch to get out...but they'll come .

if your simply swapping motors then no tuning will be needed just leave the mds solenoids unplugged in the holes.

Keith's right , the MDS solenoids don't need to be removed , just unplugged...
