Dodge V8 Swap

Has anyone on here put a 360 or 318 in place of a 22re? I'm looking into doing a complete drivetrain swap and have no worries but wiring from efi to carb. Something i've never tried before. Also i did search but 360 and V8 wouldn't search? Also who is running a holley truck avenger? are they as good as advertised? thanks aaron

I have never seen it done. IMO the dodge power plants weigth to power ratio is high(weight) compared to the common swaps (4.3/350). But that doesn't mean it can't be done...

the things I would try to find out before attacking this project are:

*is the 318 or 360 wider than a chevy 350? might have some trouble squeezing between inner fenders. Dont know
*what is the weight comparison between these motors and various others in order to decide upon springs

?

being a chevy guy at heart a 350 would be my first choice. But i have a friend who's into mopars and has complete drive trains laying around i can pick up for cheap... not to mention lots of aftermarket parts. But ya thanks for bringing mass up it will be something i check on. later aaron

Seen it... Guy had a 318 and 727 in a gen1 toy... Can't say it was the cleanest swap, but then the truck used to be a mud-truck before he turned rock-hound...

I don't see why It wouldn't fit....how much bigger is a 360 compared to a 350? Longer? wider?

Limiting factor would probably be the distributor and motor mounts. Wheres the distributor, if its in the back, you'll have to beat on the firewall (depending on how long it is)

I don't even know how 360's mount....but wiring should be easy...everything goes/comes from the key, engine bay fuseblock, battery....

or purple peeter eater....haha

If its only 2" wider, thats not much at all. Its the length you need to worry about. It looks like the distro is in the rear. Get a measurement from the distro to the fan (or the foremost structure). If its less than 3" longer than a chevy smallblock....it will fit lengthwise....you'll just have to get IN THE ZONE on the firewall.

Also, another thing you may have to worry about is exhaust...do they make block huggers for a 360?

i think maybe he was talking about the pictures....?


I dunno anyone who would rather have their radiator in their bed....weight distribution or not...its just gay.


I guess if you were a hella mudder you would...but not a trail truck.

IMO, a 88-91ish 318 or a 360 may be worth the swap (TBI, better almost W2 sized 1.60/2.02 heads). Older motors tend to be dogs stock, newer ones tend to have intake manifold leaking problems, and the 318's tend to have thin walled casting heads (they crack). also the newer ones will have wiring issues, since they end to not be swaped often.
Personally, i am a mopar guy, but I think the small block chrysler is a bad swap. They are heavy, and there arent as many parts redialy avaliavle. Personally, I see alot more 5.0 mustang motors in wrecking yards than small block chryslers. and their power to weight ratio is alot better.
