It's been a slow start, but some progress has been made. Since the purchase of the motor (last summer). I've pick up a few things. non mds lifteres, mds delete plugs, fly wheel, clutch, pressure plate.
I have also finished extending the oil pick up tube and modifying the oil pan.
it will be going into a 05 Dakota. The Dakota is already 6sp manual and i plan on keeping it that. with any luck. not sure how the tranny will hold up. might have to make future plans on swapping that too.
i'm to poor for the race track, so it will be a daily driver. i have the wiring harness and pcm for the 5.7. which came out of 2010 ram. both are the CAN bus. not sure which would be better to go with, the 5.7 pcm or the 4.7 pcm. i still need to talk to hemifever to see which would be better.
