    Hello gents. I recently picked up a 5.7 hemi out of 2008 ram 1500 and am planning to drop it into my 1970 barracuda grancoupe. Any suggestions? I have questions about which harness I should go with and where to get adapters for my speedo and for shifting

    I don’t know a lot but I have heard there is a lot on the truck engine when trying to swap it into our cars. Good luck.

    What trans are you trying to use ?
    The 5.7 swap is relatively easy , you need a stand alone computer to run the engine , not sure anything is available to run the trans , better off to use an 833 or 518
