Hello, Iâ€™ll get right to the point. Iâ€™m the original owner of a 1998 Ram (Gen 2) truck (20 years old) with the 318ci (5.3L) engine and a 5 speed manual transmission. Quad cab body suicide doors 8â€™ bed with a posatrack rear end. All leather Captains chairs, basically loaded. I installed a Good Hood cowl induction hood 18 years ago and the 318 loves it, especially on cold days. Itâ€™s got 228,000 miles on it and I drive about 2000 miles a month back and forth to work from my home to Houston Tx down I 10 averaging about 85 mph, it runs like a champ and has given me no problems. Iâ€™ve maintained it myself and do have a mechanical background. In 5 years it will be an antique and I would like to make it a show truck to enjoy on the weekend with my son. The 318 has been a great engine but instead of going back in with another 318 I would like to do a complete swap of the engine and drivetrain and install the 8.0 L V10 with the 6 speed manual transmission. Is this an â€œeasyâ€ swap that will slide right in since the V10 was an option on that truck in 1998 or will this require modifications of the engine and transmission mounts and other modifications. A new harness and computer are on the list as well as all new engine accessories. If anyone has done this I would really would appreciate your input or advice. Thank You.
