This has been discussed quite a bit....though usually they go the other way from the V8 to the V10.

Seriously, it wouldn't be worth it. The gas mileage on the smaller V8s isn't much better than the V10s and you sacrifice an enormous amount of power.

A couple of years ago,

I had:
97 Dodge 2500 4x4
360 V8
lift w/ 35s
4.10 gears
5 speed manual
12-14 mpg


My step-dad has:
98 dodge 2500 4x4
V10
lift w/ 35s
4.10 gears
Auto trans
10-12 mpg

Yeah, it gets slightly better mpg, but the 360 feels guttless compared to the V-10.

And if you did the swap, the amount of money you might lose would probably not make up for the fuel savings.

Hate to dig up an older post, but I feel like putting a v8 in place of my 10 right now. Gutless, no power, eats fuel. I think it's got something to do with ignition. Is there something wrong with yours? Just seeing if something similar to mine would make you want to swap it.

How much? Shipping to 31088. Well, I'm going to change the spark plugs/wires one more time. If this doesn't fix it, it's going on fire.
