Re: Ram 50 1988

The easiest way to do a 3.5 would probably actually be an old LH 3.5 (intrepid, concorde, lhs, etc) and a 42rle trans from the vehicles with the 2.7, 3.5, and 4.0 in this list: Ultradrive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Should be the 300, charger, magnum, challenger, and nitros. The 2.7, 3.5, and 4.0 share a bellhousing pattern.

You should be able to use the electronics from the LH car to run the 42rle as it is basically the same trans in a different case.

Also, even the first gen 3.5 rated at 214hp can EASILY make 230+ (maybe 240) just with a real intake and exhaust. The intake tube and downpipes on a 1g 3.5 are flipping ridiculously bad.

Bunch'o K-cars.

Re: Ram 50 1988

the 05 up engine doesn't use a cable throttle and the computer system is a lot different to run it all. New engines make more power by working like a predator carburetor where they have variable CFM levels with engine load. So when you floor it you only get about 50% throttle till the engine revs up enough to get the rest of it. This makes for more torque and HP through out the whole RPM range.

As with any V8 the carb makes unreal power everywhere, too much really causing worlds of damage with a 440 lol. Also ate a ton of fuel even though it ran it lean enough to turn the headers red. But todays hemi's and the new V6 engines make a ton more power and torque from using this tech in electronic fuel injection form.

Going to this though you must use all the factory wiring or it won't work, you'll also have to include interior wiring.

In a PM you mentioned drifting and drag racing. Drifting with a little engine really sucks, you have an on off switch power wise. AE86 guys rip out the turbo 4 and add a Toyota V8 for instance. So you should move thoughts towards the new Hemi, not a V6 even with a turbo for drifting.

I grew up with muscle cars, so the idea of drifting as a sport is amusing. Unless you drive really slow or backing out of the driveway you really don't use the front wheels to turn. More like a motorcycle. Lean your head over to the side a bit and give it the gas and you turn. But you must be able to completely control tire speed with the throttle. Turbo's and electronic throttles murder this driving control. Today people look at drifting as reckless driving, trying to crash to do it. In the 80s with a muscle car if you didn't drift you were going to crash. Those cars don't turn unless you slow way down. So you either learned how to over steer all the time or you under steered into a ditch.

Drifting is dominated by V8s and the V10 Vipers, so it would be wise if looking at drifting NOT to run a little engine. Drag racing is different of course.

Re: Ram 50 1988

SO the better choice was 318 or 5,7 hemi? new hemi use cable throttle? or I have to use hole harness? What is the best combo tranny-engine for V8??

The cherooke engine was the same engine as dodge? here we can find lot of cherooke v8 in junkyard? I could easily find a cherooke with 360 engine and harness for 200-300$

Re: Ram 50 1988

The new hemi is a good choice, but you want to use the MSD hemi 6 computer and cable throttle.

The V8 Cherokee is a great choice too, a little cheaper maybe. But if you want to start out with a new or almost new engine you can find a 5.7 hemi cheaper than rebuilding a magnum Cherokee engine.

My first choice would be a 5.7 hemi with a MSD controler.
Ignition/Timing Control for Late HEMI - 6013

The hemi 6 controler
5.7 hemi
headers
Comp Cams 273 cam
cable throttle and single pane intake

That makes for 485 HP engine, pretty easy setup. The new hemi is a work of art and pleasure to work on. I added a big cam to one and beehive springs a couple years ago.

Re: Ram 50 1988

Tremec 5 or 6 speed

this place sells kits, you can get a bell housing and trans and work from there.

There are adapters for the auto trans, but drifting you need a manual trans
