2012 SRT Charger, 2003 Ram hemi, 2005 Magnum
Same engine. You can't use any of the electronics from the 08 in your 06 anyway. Install it, use your year sensors where there are any harness variations.
05-07, then for 08 they revised the CAN bus that ran to 2010; 09 switched to VVT hemi except for the 6.1. This is why the 09-10 PCM will work in the earlier models but doesn't have the capability to actuate an SRV. Revised again for 11-14, with a crank reluctor wheel change in 13. CAN bus revised again in 2015.Do you know the year breaks on the early models for 6.1/6.4 compatability. If I was to go with 2014 or under what would you recommend?
My understanding is the earlier small blocks are stronger than the newer ones but don’t know the details (block, crank, pistons, rods, etc).
Just thinking for a future project car. Maybe a Challenger some day since I have a Charger.
