    87 Ram 50 EGH 'build thread'

    figured i would start a build thread

    my plan is to use a chrysler egh v6 and a NSG370 6 speed. the 3.3L is my choice, a great mixture of gas mileage and power.

    i will me going over what fabrications have to be done, what to use, where to buy parts, and what 'customizations' i did to personalize it.

    so far i have the following required things listed:

    -engine mount brackets

    -radiator with fans (no fan on engine)

    -nsg 370 transmission mount and crossmember section

    -custom driveshafts

    -custom exhaust system

    -rerouted intake

    -custom wiring harness

    -gauge cluster remap and adapter(s)

    what i am customizing:


    -reused factory muffler, modified to 2 1/4 inch inlet/outlet

    -custom center console and bucket seats: requires custom shifter

    -custom ecu tune

    -larger injectors

    -32" tires and 20" or 22" wheels

    -front leveling kit (montero control arms and keyed torsion beams)

    -custom gauge cluster with digital gauges, 140 speedo, and 8k tachometer, custom gauge face and color theme

    -custom interior recolor (black/green-orange colorshift with white accents and white stitching) leather upholstery

    -custom wrap (flat black with green-orange colorshift tribal stripes and gloss black / white-orange colorshift accent stripes)

    -Suspension/frame repaint (completely flat black and rubberized undercoating under the cab and bed and in the fender wells

    -'Sport II Limited' badging

    -spray in bed liner

    Budget: $15,000

    Wallet: Enough

    Estimate: about $5,000 in engine work, $5,000 in appearance customizations



    most of this build thread is going to be exactly how to put an EGH V6 into a power ram 50, which is absolutely ridiculous. and im sure someone else MIGHT do this sometime in the future. Maybe this will be a valuable resource to them. If not ill have this to look back on as a memory.
