TOXIXIFY: How did you port the throttle body? Is there any way to do it without a mill? THANKS!
stephshane1: The 5.2 will last alot longer stock
Anthony Cole: Dude freaking nice!
DINPAK LLC: Did you ever do a video after the swap? Looking for the after party.....
funbunch052293: hey buddy i have a 01 ram 5.2 and wanting to drop the 5.9 in there. did the 5.9l fit right in or did you have to mess with your cross members or any frabication???
cybillify bla: i want to chip my 5.9 360, what will i need to do? or can i just put a chip in?
fathergratwick: 360 does outperform the 318..the 318 is like the chevy 327 with a cult following of it own... 318 had a slightly higher compression ratio to try and keep up the 360 gets better mpg for the added cubic inches...there is no replacement for displacement... the jet chip doesnt do much after 200 miles when the pcm relearns and corrects the setting to override all of its changes...
95ram1500: nice work but first The jet chip is absolute garbage. b&g flash or mopar pcm. And second my 318 is at a 7.5sec 0-60 and getting better with each new mod. I wouldve re done that 318. almost no huge power difference. just where the powers at. 318 has a lot of torque and can take a hell of a lot more abuse. all around though very clean swap and nice work.
trat50: Did you have to change the factory engine computer?
crazywarriorman: Buy a chevy ha ha
gohomeimigrants: Like what you did with the dodge. How much did that end up costing you? I have the 5.2 and im sick of it. Want some more power to beat my roommate's ricer
simpsonlandscaping: ha our dodge dakota has a 5.9 magnum packed in under the hood
tomfulton85: did u have to change the computer
94civiclxgrey: thats a hell of a nice job on that motor Looks great man! 5****
Moparman58: i knew that would work but i dont know what the point is on swapping engines, the 360 doesnt have that much more power and you get the power from a 318, but nice work, looks nice
PROUD602: how much did it cost for everything you had to do total cuz i want to know how much it is to do the swap
yegarboy: You shouldnt have any problems at all. The only real differance between the two motors is the bore. The heads are close in specs as well. You should notice a 20 percent increase in torqe and hp. Looks nice as hell too. Good job, Keep us posted.
buickjunkie86: how do you know weather or not your engine is a 5.9 is there a destinct sign in order or tag on the motor to know this other than the car vin
moparheart: of course itll work a 5.9 360 is just a bored out 5.2 318 the only problems are fuel pressure which can be solve with a 360 psi regulator on the sending unit and the wieght on the torque converter has to be taken off
jeosua beltran: jet chips are garbage get an sct tuner
Jason Geminiani: i replaced the 5.2 with a 5.9 torque converter just to be on the safe side but it will work with a 5.2 but might cause a vibration
rapidrus: what did you wind up doing about torque converter?
Klayton Procter: im changin my 3.9 v6 to to a 5.9 too hope it bolts in i know i need to change comp anything you know?
Kellyswheels: Any plans to upload a video of it running? We want to see it alive! Looks nice.
Jason Geminiani: yes i know from the the reserch i did before i did this but the only thing i had truoble with is how do u know where to put the weight on the torque converter because the fly wheel lines up in 4 diferent ways. the fly wheel and balancers are defently different then the 5.2 other than that she runs alot better then the old 5.2
Ben Benjamin: One thing you might want to know about the small block mopars ... the 5.9 is externally balanced and the 5.2 is internally balanced.
The harmonic balancer on the 5.9 is part of the balancing, but you will need the weighted torque converter or flexplate to maintain proper balancing.
