My 5.2L engine is about done, I have close to 200k on it, and I have a low mileage 89 350 that I'm considering putting into it. Has anyone done this?

It's just an idea, since I already have the engine, but I cant find anything about anyone doing it. I searched the forums and couldn't find anything

:withstupid: and also you could forget about the fuel injection and the electronic tranny. then goes the speedo. so you would need custom mounts and also a chevy tranny and a drivers side drop t-case. your dash would be lit up like a x-mas tree..

other than that you would have a great motor and tranny, and easy to find parts..

i agree, sell it and build your 318, i have a 97 with a 318 with about 140,000 miles and it still kicks. however i wish it didnt so i had an excuse to rebuild it with some internal mods

Thats about what I figured... Heh, what about tossing my AMC 401 into it!

I guess I'm either gonna have to rebuild it, or find a low milage wrecked truck and pull the engine... Unless I get the 5.7 hemi.....

I would do the 5.7 Hemi swap if its posable.Or just rebuild your motor or find a low milage 318-360 at a junk yard.

I think you are missing the point that none of these will pass CA emissions besides a dodge magnum engine.

why wont it? i mean only a state inspection station would care if it was something other then the fuel injected original motor so just take it to the local gas station that does inspections and hand the guy a 50.... then have him kick you square in the ass for for disgracing everything that is mopar.

that aside i know of a guy on trucks gone wild with a red dodge called "tough tugger" that has a 600ci custom built chevy crate motor in the bed of his truck using a reverser and that truck is bad a55. that has nothing to do with inspection but some guys arent against swapping a chevy motor into a dodge.
