He has the money/knowledge to put a 2004 Hemi engine in his truck, but not enough knowledge/money to paint or find a color matched hood, or find/install a front bumper?

Have to pull out the B.S. flag for that one.

If he really had it, he would have showed it to us in the engine bay to brag about it.

I kinda doubt it. It sounds like a magnum, although I could be mistaken. But that kid looks like a total dip****, and while i know you should not judge a book by its cover, i'm going to anyway.

Putting that engine in a 2nd gen truck would be a hell of a project. If I had enough money, I definitely would try it. It would require a lot of work, and someone who had done this before and know what he is doing. It would be cool if it worked, though.

Thats not a hemi, they sound completely different. That sounds bigger than a 5.7 def a 5.9 in there.

Man I could settle for a 5.7 HEMI or just buy a SRT Charger or 300 but thats not what I want. I figure if someone can put the engine from Nissan Titan into a G35 and make it work, then there should be a way a 6.1 can fit into a 2nd gen Ram.

If you're gonna go through the trouble of re-doing basically your entire drivetrain, electrical etc to put a different motor in then you should put in a motor that's worth the trouble. and the 5.7 hemi AIN'T IT.

Ok well i guess ill work with what I got so now I need help finding the best way to beef the 5.2 up. I think someone said a stroker kit and Ill look into that. Anyone heard of putting on a turbo/supercharger?

Yeah, supercharging these motors is fairly common.

Check out this page

Most of the upgrades for a 5.9 apply to the 5.2 as well.
