2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Converting 5.2 To A 5.9 Magnum




What do you think about this video?

Johnny martinez: If I do this can I use the same wire harness and just change the computer and do I have to get a different starter???

wessendorf15: i have a 97 with a 5.2 and want to switch to a 5.9 but i have a nv 3500 5 speed stick shift. i wonder if it would match to?

Ryan Clevenger: Question: did the transmissions match? or did you swap those too. Im doing something similar but backwards. The truck Im getting is a 2000 Dodge Ram Quadcab 4x4 5.9L 4spd auto and it threw a rod, the engine I have readily available is from a 99 dodge ram 1500 5.2l RWD, I know that the blocks match up the mounts, but didn't know all the details about your transmission swap, or if it will work

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.....

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: @gohomeimigrants Buy a chevy ha ha

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

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
