Re: 350 motor swap into a 89 dodge dakota
Any way you look at it...its going to be a tremendous hassle. NO WAY is a 350 going to bolt right in. If you really want a v-8...check the bolt patterns and trans inputs...starting in 93, the dakota was available with the 5.2L 318. I had one, it was a club cab 4x4 with 3.55s...and it was FAST! I would imagine that if a 318 will fit...then a 360 should too...Keep it simple, Keep it RIGHT, Keep it Mopar! Any v-8 is going to be a huge project....but I'm sure sticiking with the chrysler stuff might cost more, but it'd be easier to do.
