Was this combo ever made by Dodge? 5.9L/5 speed?

In my quest for a better running truck, I am looking for a PCM to run a 360 infront of a NV3550. Am I looking for something that does not exist? Cause I havent been able to find one, new or used yet.

Just about positive it was available in the 2500 and 3500 series trucks.

Yes, there was a 5 speed available behind the 360 in the 2500 series trucks. I know of one 2000 model that we sold recently.

There was a 5.9L/NV4500 combo available in 3/4 and 1 ton trucks, but Dodge never offered a 5.9L/3550 combination in a 1/2t truck.

I assume that you are looking for an ECU again to run your truck?

Yup, while the truck is running currently, Im just trying to get it to run better. Right now, the stock 318 ECU is working, just trying to get everything 'right' if you know what I mean.

Any ideas on how to get this done? What would a AT computer do if it didnt have the tranny?

Also, anyone know where I could find the tech specs on these computers? Pinouts and such.

buy the computer for a 2500 series truck.. the computer does not know whether you have a 3500 or a 4500

I believe the AT computer will through codes and light up the check engine light as I believe it recieves inputs from the auto tranny..

factory service manual should have the wiring diagram showing the pinouts as well as the voltage ranges..

you can either try and score a pcm from a 2500 or 3500 with a manual or you can contact a shop here that is getting custom pcm flashes done from a chyrsler software engineer. they can take any j series pcm and write it for your spacific needs. manual, fuel curves and any mods you have. if you are interested it let me know and i will shoot you there info.

The problem you may have running a 2500 or 3500 program is that they are often tuned differently than 1/2 ton ones, since they are subject to the heavy duty emissions (8600 and over GVW). Can't say for sure about the Dodges (mine got a mechanical smoker ), but I know on 350 Chevys they are different.

The heavier trucks are designed to run under sustained high throttle condition, and sometimes have a bit less power, plus work with different emissions equiptment.

i have a 94 1500 sb reg cab with a 3500 5 spd and a 360. It was a special order option only in 94-95. After that it was not available at all.

I swapped a manual into my truck (2nd gen) and no codes were thrown by the auto PCM...

I have used an auto PCM in both Chrysler and GM vehicles that were equipped with manuals and have not had any issues or codes thrown...
