So I noticed my power thread turned into an engine swap thread so I figure I'd make another for potential engine setups. I've established that:
2.4 trucks can be built since the engine will handle it
2.0 trucks can be swapped with 4g63 easily
3.0 trucks can be swapped with Stealth/3000gt and VR4 setup engine
Any truck can be swapped to a 4d55 diesel
Anyone have info on other swaps that can be done without the extreme mods and heavy cash dump like cutting into the frame or body. I'd like to look into a cost effective dodge swap. Keep it in the family. (I know that's going to get taken the wrong way) But No offense to your 4.3 vortec build Camoit lol but I don't really like seeing chevy engines in a MM. It's hard enough seeing them in a RX7. It kinda kills the spirit.
I was wondering if the old school 318 with 727 would work. I know theyre heavier than the v6 but not exessively heavy. Theyre also very easy to come by and repair. I know it'll fit in the engine bay. Before the storm flooded the truck I had a 93 ramcharger doner with ecm, harness etc that had been wrecked and it was the magnum too. However I've still got access to some older 360s, 383s, 400s and 440s.
