So here's a crazy idea would it be possible to swap
a gas engine from a f700 I believe 1980s model and
429 engine into a ram 1500 that was a v6

Yes, if you have a good welder and know a guy.

The 429 F700 truck engine had a very low HP rating, but lots of torque. Your V6 probably makes more power.
