Hello,I want to swap out my v6 for a v8. Ns came across an almost brand-new SRT8 hemi for sale locally... It has a trans, yet no computer.I was hoping that I could bolt it approximately the v6 transmission. Will certainly it fit?As because that the computer... I was just going to usage a stand alone device for the engine, yet I can"t control a tranny with the one i have. (have another car v the very same stand alone setup).Sooo yeah that"s basically my question... Have the right to I bolt increase the SRT8 motor to my 96 2wd tranny, and if not... What around the traditional v8 tranny... Are they different?Thanks.

v8 swap is very easy, the share v6 tranny will certainly work but it won"t host up as well as the v8 tranny, and also get the v8 computer and also wire in the extra 2 injectors right into the wiring harness and also your set. 318 or 360?, a hemi swap will be much an ext involved and will need some fabrication and also what not.

v8 swap is an extremely easy, the stock v6 tranny will certainly work but it won"t hold up and also the v8 tranny, and also get the v8 computer and wire in the extra 2 injectors into the wiring harness and also your set. 318 or 360?, a hemi swap will certainly be much more involved and also will need some fabrication and also what not.
I don"t mind making engine mounts and also such, but I would favor to usage the very same trans if ns can. I can acquire the SRT8 motor for about $800You make a an excellent point through the harness... Didn"t think that that. Stock device uses what.. 2 injector driver banks?

The bellhousing top top the 5.2 and also 5.9 is the same as the 3.9. Converter readjust might be important if you walk with particular model year V-8"s.

if girlfriend go with a 360 friend will require a 360 particular weighted converter, i don"t know how plenty of injector drivers are used but i just know you have the right to swap in the v8 computer, discover the extra circuits on the v8 computer and wire in the injectors, its so you can use the share wiring harness. Hem swaps can obtain expensive however your ram you may have an ext room to play with. The 42 rh will hold a 318 v a hp rebuild kit or a 360 v the same. You understand i"m pretty certain a 42 would certainly bolt up to a hemi however there may be some problems with that. And it wouldn"t survive really long.

Do girlfriend think over there is any way I can use the trans the comes with the hemi? i figured the those things space probably computer controlled and thus un-usable in my situation - i don"t have the ecu.
the 5-45 rfe will certainly sit unique in there and get the tcm and pcm the end of an 03 and you"ll be set 5 45"s are great tranny"s, clip among the wires and eliminate tq management (only on 03 earlier models however) and y"ll have actually some nice shifts.
"96 and later engines moved the load from the converter to the flexplate for this reason the converter continues to be the exact same for all. (the converter will certainly bolt up four different ways too! <90 level converter> ) keep the flexplate with the engine you use.

Why not you just buy one ECU and also wiring harness out of a junkyard? I would certainly think it would be easier than do the efforts to gain it come work any type of other way. By the way, the srt8 hem engine is 425hp. I doubt the v6 tranny would organize up to anything short of driving favor a grandma. If you do that, why would certainly you desire a 425hp engine anyway? usage carpart.com because that the parts you need.

If I used a was standing alone device I can ditch every one of the emissions stuff and also tune the motor for better fuel anyways. Not to point out that the stand alone system prices less 보다 the manufacturing facility setup.

Well that"s what I"m do the efforts to number out. No sure just how to do the charger trans job-related with all of the electronics and crap. Possibly just get a v8 trany?
What around just get the share wiring harness, use what friend get, and also get a tradition SCT tune. You can do everything the hell friend wanted, and also it might still be cheaper.(Can girlfriend tell i favor the 545rfe tranny? lol)

That"s the problem...the engine and also trans is cheap due to the fact that there is no harness... And also it"s an 06 therefore not straightforward to discover at a wrecker.
