V6 to V6 Swap

Ok, I really want to drive my truck around this summer, and I am considering keeping an eye out for a V6 from a Ram or Dak.

Just wondering if I found a Magnum 6 instead of an older 6 would I need anything other then the motor, or also the ECM? Because the only difference with Mag vs Non mag was interal but I'm not sure if there might be some controller issues too??

I just don't know if the Hemi will be done this summer, but I want to drive the damn thing.... the old engine just isn't overly reliable ...

I can get a motor for 2-300 bucks.... Assuming its just plug and play...

I would like to know about this too. I've thought of picking up another v6 for a build
Lookin on Kijiji (canada's craigslist) the prices for a 318 and a V6 are basically the same.... If your looking for a build, I would consider a V8 if I were you man..

Hell I'm considering it even for my temporary set up.. for the price.. why not. Its an easy swap overall dude... skip the V6 its a slug ...
ill have to keep my eyes open then thx man
