3rd gen Ram Accessory’s/timing cover on a BGE block?

So my question is will the timing cover and front accessory’s from a 3rd gen Ram bolt up to a 11-19 BGE block with no issues? I’ve already modified my front timing cover, AC and alternator to accommodate a 6.1 intake. Found a good deal on a BGE block and now thinking of scratching the 6.1 stroker and going this route with Apache heads and 6.1 intake.

I believe the block bolt and layout is the same on all the hemi as far as how the timing cover attaches to it. One thing I think though is the older cover is not as deep I think and will not allow the vvt timing gear under it but I may be wrong there as I personally have never tryed what your wanting to do. Ric will most likely know this answer for you for sure

Definitely won’t be utilizing VVT or 58 tooth reluctor. It’s just a bare block so I will be needing a rotating assemby with 32 tooth reluctor.

Having just finished installing the rotating assembly in a 6.1 block I can recommend doing your math for deck height so you will not have any surprises.

the Pre-VVT cover will bolt on but the cover will not clear the VVT gear. I've used the BGE/Eagle Cover on the None VVT blocks, the timing sensor is in the same location and relativity to the tone wheel.

even if you don't want the VVT function all the cams available for those blocks require the VVT cam gear....you can lock the gear and remove the function...and even the cam gear I have made for the VVT blocks is as thick as that cam gear....there is no way around it you have to use the 09 and up cover on the VVT blocks.

I've been involved in a few 6.4 swaps in to Pre 09 cars and Trucks. it can be done. if you want to keep AC you need to look at the car timing covers the truck covers are limited because the trucks use an electric steering rack.
the AC compressor on the 09+ trucks is where the Power steering pump is on the pre 09s.. the Alt on the 09+ is in the AC compressor spot on the pre 09s

Here's a photo of the 09 Challenger belt routing and acc lay out. it's your best bet to keep AC
