While I applaud your enthusiasm it will cost way too much. You’d be better off trading / selling your SXT and buying an R/T. It just isn’t cost effective to do the swap because you’ll need a lot more than just the engine. If you’ve got money to burn buy a wrecked 2015-2016 R/T and swap basically the whole drive train and electronics on over.

I know it sucks to hear but it’s the truth. It would be way cheaper to supercharge your 3.6 and you’ll get about the same or a touch more HP.

Thread #278 on this topic without it ever being done by anyone other than a performance shop.


To beat a dead horse, you'll spend way more money and have many more headaches trying to accomplish this than you would if you just went and bought a 5.7 car.
