    Magnum engine swap

    First off, I just want to say that I have a ton of ideas, just not enough money to bring them all to life. So, I will probably be making tons of threads to tell you guys what I thought of when I was bored. Please bear with me and don't tear me to pieces for posting. but feel free to debate my ideas and tear them apart like a good piece of beef jerky.

    I was driving the company truck today at work, a dodge 1500 with a 5.2 liter v8, and I was like, "wouldn't it be awesome if I could swap the engine out of this into a stealth?" (not a 3k, I'm one of those, ford engine goes in the ford, chevy goes in chevy etc.)

    I couldn't find anything about it by searching. do you guys know if it would fit w/o too much super custom modifying?

    Wont happen without a RWD swap, or some serious custom drivetrain.

    I would also suggest if you do a V8 swap look into something with more power to start with, and more of an aftermarket for. There is no point in putting in a heavier engine with the same amount of power.

    -Ricer Evo 8: 8.75 @ 166 Best MPH of 167. Quickest 4G63 Powered Evo in The US!!!
    -Chris Cessna's Stock short block Evo 8: 9.76@150 Worlds Fastest Stock Motor Evo 8 and First Stock Block In The 9's!
    -Shawna's DD Evo 8: 9.97@143.88 Best MPH of 145 Full leather interior, A/C, navigation, stock brakes, cruisin 9's in style
    -Cory's Stock 7 bolt talon: 10.3@136 No crank walk here...
    -STM Stock turbo/motor Stealth RT: 10.95@127 Worlds Quyickest/Fastest and most powerful Stock turbo/ motor 3S
    -James STM built Pump gas Evo8 stock motor: 10.2@137 Stock long block, and only on pump gas!
    -Mike Faggiano Evo3 16g stock motor 1g 11.0@124 just a 16g knockin on 10's door.
    And the list goes on...

    You do realize a Dodge Stealth has a MITSUBISHI engine in it don't you?

    And as mentioned, no way it will work without a ton of customization. It would require a ton of fabrication and a RWD swap. Not worth it for the power, or lack there of gained.
