    difference between car and truck hemi??

    Hello all, I am new to this forum. I am looking at buying a 2006 Magnum Awd with a lurched hemi ( cylinder number 7 has no compression). I have been looking for a engine and all I have found was used for $2500plus tax. At the same yard I found one out of a 2006 1500 regular cab with low miles for $1600. Np I know I know I am going to have to change the intake,exhaust manifolds and oil pan but what else is different? I thank you all for the help I can get with my project.

    just make sure the motor is actually a 06 motor. 05 and older truck HEMI motors had many differences. 05 looks like this

    What are the differences in the 05 and older truck blocks versus the car blocks?

    i don't know if anything in the block is different. for sure the ignition system, intake, and accessories are different.

    My 03 Ram doesn't have MDS. There are some holes in the heads that might need to be tapped for the LX accessories. Not really sure tho.

    mainly what the others have said...but the blocks themselves will be the same...as long as it did have mds. the heads for the majority will be that same...but the holes on the driver head for the PS pump may not me drilled and tapped...but if all you need is the block...swap everything else over and you will be good to go.
