I live in a state that doesnt test for emmisions and i wanted to swap my 3.5 for something nasty. I need a crate engine that will beat an R/t in Torque and accleration and be reliable enough to act as my everyday car. This would have to be able to plug directly into my current system without having to change the electrical system. How much would this cost me in total?? Im seriously considering this and i am also accepting offers.

Considering all the parts you will have to swap (suspension, brakes, axle, etc...) from your 3.5L, 10K is not even half of what you'll pay for the total cost.

If you are going to spend all that money and time why not just trade up to an R/T or SRT?

You are asking for a nightmare with your computers. Trust me, did the swap already, i hope you know somebody at DCX pretty well. If I didn't, I would have been screwed.

How does your car ride compared to a charger r/t? Is it exactly the same, better, or worse.
