slow start for the hemi swap

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.

Assuming it's a street truck it should do great and I would think will be fun to drive. If the engine that was in it before was a 4.7 it should be simple to get up and running. Well done...

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.

For my 2 cents it's a no brainer. 4.7 pcm would be way easier than "trying" to integrate the 10 pcm..

You are right of course, I had forgotten about the tone wheel. Changing tone wheels needs the crank to be dropped. Might be worth it in the long run.,

either way will be a pain. but i'm still a long way from that. still need to figure radiator hoses, ac lines, power steering.

i did get a 2010 ram service manual in cd form. but it didn't have index or page numberrs. so I have to scroll through all thing. May be need to find another one.

Agreed, assuming the engine is in good condition you should be able to inspect and reuse everything. I've seen on the stroker sites they offer 32 and 58 rings for both bolt patterns.
