Mopar Magnum 360 / 5 Speed Swap
Posted 01 October 2014 - 08:11 AM
I do have an introductory thread somewhere here if you want to track the car from day one when I bought it.
Here are some pics so far:
I’ll start the story here. The day I pulled the G54b and 5 speed out of the car.

Next I purchased a 1996 Dodge Ram pickup with the Magnum 360 V8. It was easier to buy the complete truck so I could take all of the wiring that I needed to swap in to the quest.
The unfortunate thing about these vehicles is that they both ran and drove, but they didn’t have titles. Both I parted out and hopefully the parts made it to other cars to get back on the road.
This is how the car sits today in my garage. I just pulled everything in the garage this weekend to start this project for the winter. I have coilovers and other misc. parts that the car will receive also. I am building this car on a budget so I’m hoping it wont be to slow going.
I’ll keep everyone posted on the project. I’m sure I’ll be asking many questions from the v8 swap people.

Yes, the plan is to stick with the stock intake from the truck. There isn’t many options out there for the magnum motor if I want to keep it efi. The whole point of using this motor is to keep the car fuel injected. The barrel is rated well for torque so I’m hoping that will work in my favor. The plan is to get this motor around 300 horse for now and go from there.

You will have to look past the trashed garage. We did alot of work that day and not a ton of care was given in the cleanliness.
I am still having problems figuring out the efi situation. There are multiple people that have done this swap on the interwebs but hardly anyone has a write up on how they wired the ECU and engine harness. Looks like I will be busting out the wiring diagrams for both vehicles.
More to come.

Pretty close to finished product here. I did get some rear camber plates and I put the spacers in the front camber plates that are not shown here.

New pressure plate
Test fitting motor and tranny together. Everything seems to fit fine but I need to figure out a new bushing for the input shaft
Motor fits just need to figure out headers and engine mounts
Cleaned up the

Test fitting the wheels. They are 18x11. These are not the wheels and tires going on the car but are similar in size and back spacing. I will not stretch my tires this far.
