Is this a 5.0 liter Mopar engine? Painless make wiring harnesses for just about everything and I think they do custom harnesses if they don't stock one to match what you are doing.
A Ford engine in a Dodge? Why? Fords are a problem to start with, wierd wiring, and just general configuration. Then make it 10 times worse and swap into a non Ford body.
The idea in itself is absurd, for any non matching manufacture swap. You better have have some mad fabrication skills and electrical skills to pull this off. Or really deep pockets. Even if you pull it off, who would want it? You'd be lucky to get $1000 for it it running condition, 3 years after starting on the project. You'll have $8000-10,000 in it by the time your done.
