A 396/hemi? I'd love to see that but to tell the truth it might be too big for motor mounting u may have to adjust by cutting and welding. 5.7 318s are the factories largest motor in a Ram 1500.


If you have really deep pockets you could do this swap but the cost will likely require a substantial second on your house.
