So I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 v6 5 speed
manual transmission and I want to swap it with a
old 318 non-fuelinjection what parts will I need for
the swap, and what problems will I mostly run into.
Engine mounts, exhaust system, emissions system, transmission. You may have to have the engine mounts modified/moved. The exhaust system will also have to be customized. If your state or county has emissions testing, it will not pass if they check it by plugging into the computer (the old 318 won't use the OBD2 computer connection). Lastly, will the transmission fit or will you need an adapter? I would think long and hard about installing an older engine. Make sure you have a plan for getting everything working and connected properly before diving into this project.
Ok, thanks. But what would I need for wiring purposes, (Like to look up or buy to make the engine swap work.)
