up and up... the sky is the limit.
Just get EVERY bit of wiring from that totalled truck. Including interior/dash wiring. Shouldn't take to much fab to get the motor bolted in. Bolts in like a v8 just a little longer but hopfully it sits forward enough to leave the firewall alone. Have custom motor mounts made and As far as the slip yoke shaft goes just buy a regular cab alumium driveshaft and have it cut and welded to work with your car bro. Shouldnt be very hard at all. Heard of a few people doing swaps like this in other cars/truck and coming soon(maybe, probley, hopfully) a sandrail.
hehehe, our FLOOR getting crazy now, succes with the project young boy... just don't forget "how" you want it on the road..... tuning "oldtimers" is now also forbitten in our banana land ... so you have only 1 option without "cheating" : get the car on O-plates before any changes . Afterwards you "can" change what you want but remember making it in fact impossible to sell ever , which requires a new tech inspection....
but i imagine that crossed your mind already....
good luck with the wrenching :rock:
hey Barry, long time no see. How R doing?
Yeah, did some research beforehand obviously... we're getting the sled ready for licence plate with (vintage) V8 & trans, then (only then) the real fun starts.... complete frame off, I only want to do this once
Most likely the firewall will need some mod's, don't think the ten will fit otherwise. I was just wondering now how I can get the PCM (any OEM type) to work. If it is VIN independant it should be a no brainer right?
You guys know which sensors (appart from those ON the engine) I need to connect/use without a complete re-program of the computor?
Even if the oem computer needs a vin number you can just use the one from your truck
Wow, thatz gangsta
well thank you sir....
got my hands on some desoto teeth and NOS bumpers.
Picked up the engine from the forwarder last week... Now wondering if I need a stock wire harness or "viper harness for non viper applications".:dontknow:
Salvage yard yanked out (= cut) some of the wiring that came on the engine
Engine/trans is out of a 2006 Ram, ECU I got is from 2005 model.
I'm planning to use autometer gauges.
Guide me viper wizards ! :rock:
first thing is if ya go with an '06 factory harness, will it plug into the '05 ECM???
it should fit. PCM is good for all models.
rare03srt10 is the member who has a buddy that might be able to help ya:rock:
One of my customers has a '49 Merc similar to that one. What a heavy machine. Has a big block in it. Great car....good luck with it!
will this work on a '06 engine on the merc ?
Wiring Harness For use with Viper V10 crate engines in non-Viper installations.
Will need to investigate.... sending back wrong parts from overseas is a bitch.
PS: my computor crashed, if someone can send me a link where i can find the workshop book for a 2005 ram srt (I remember i was a +80 Mb pdf) i would appreciate it.
The best way is to find a "complete" wiring harness from a wrecked 06. It will be easier to elliminate the wires you don't need than to figure out the ones you do need. even the fuel system will need to be utilized. I have the 2005 service manual It is 175 MB . I will try to find a link.
I PM'd you the linkfor the 06 manual. i downloaded it and it works !!
there is a company that makes harnesses just for this my buddy just did a 20s doge and put a viper motor in it plug and play let me dig them up hold on
HotwireAuto - Fuel Injected Wiring Harnesses
this kit worked awesome they will also flash your pcm!!!!!!!!!!!
thks guys... very usefull.
What is THE diameter of our rear axle? Plan to remove THE leaf springs and go for coil over shocks. What would you recommend ? 3 link or 4 link set up?
howcome the SC's have sway bars on the rear axle and QC's don't ?
Would you recommend sway bars in combination with a triangle 4 link and coil overs on my merc project?
anyone familiar with these ?
Flex-Form Composite Leaf Springs replace Steel Leaf Springs
