    3.5L to 5.7L HEMI swap

    Hello all! This is my first post on here.
    I recently purchased an 07 SXT Magnum (I wanted one the moment I layed eyes on it). The price was right and the wife loved it. I went with it because I had seen good things about the 3.5L, but after playing with it a little, I'm not to thrilled with it. So, I was wondering if anyone has done a swap from the 3.5 to the 5.7L (or bigger). Are there any issues, concerns or maybe a kit for it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Ok, I'll try this again. Aparently my first reply didn't stick.
    I like the kit that gunracer posted, but that is way more than i need. I'll be upgrading all of the other parts later. Is there any way that I can buy a charger/magnum/300 and just use it for a "kit"?
    I think I have the 4speed transmission. Does anyone know where i can look up a vin code?
    I plan on doing this all myself to keep costs down and keep familiar with the project.
    And yes jamesowatta us old school geeks have our own sense of humor.

    Thanks for that link Radglenn.
    The main reason that I asked about the vin, is the parts store asked me about the engine code on the vin and I felt a bit silly not knowing.

    Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.
