i've seen threads where ppl have swapped the 5.7L hemi in they're 3rd gen. the main problem i believe is wiring, engine mounts, and the oil pan? i believe. it had to be shortened or something like that.

i know for sure its over on dakota-durango tho.

any swap outside the ordinary is usually a pain. but can be done. i have seen a couple 3rd gen dakotas with either 440 big blocks or viper v-10's swaped under the hood

just takes more thought that what make a custom stand apart from the rest
