    Because I am not sure the wife or wallet would be ok with me getting a cat to swap... And her reason would be cause the wallet might not support it at this point

    I watched both of the videos as well, and it doesn't surprise me that everything bolts up. It's pretty common knowledge (at least that I thought) that the underlying structure is essentially unchanged. Everything should bolt up.

    I was under the impression that it's the wiring/computers that will get you. Especially when swapping over from a pre-08 car to 08+ engine/trans combo. The different CANBUS systems are the downfall. That's one reason why the 6-speed swap into the Magnum isn't readily done. The 6-speed computer is the later CANBUS and won't play well with the earlier CANBUS. Wanna swap in the later style dash into a pre-08 Magnum and use those gauges, I don't think it will work without a lot of electronic changes. That's why you really don't see a lot of that being posted.

    Regarding the 6-speed Magnum that Cleveland Power Peformance did, I saw the trans tunnel "surgery" that was needed. it's been said that the trans tunnel is different/wider for the 6-speed, but it's the same. It's just the top plate that is different, with a hole for the shifter. But I'm still wondering how they did the wiring, since their car is an 06 (with an 08 clip).

    That being said, this guy looks like he is pulling the entire wiring harness out of the 6.4 car and putting it into the Magnum. The BCM should play well, as this is an 08 car. Definitely interested in how this all turns out.

    Oh??? Any more details on this? I'd love an 8spd in my 06 SRT8 (if & when my 5-speed gives it up).

    I, like you, assumed everyone knew just how little the chassis has changed over the years.

    If you take all the associated electronics out of a late model donor car and put them in say a Magnum of any year, electrical issues become extremely simple. That is what the guy is doing...if any reprogramming required it'll be minor precisely because he is transplanting everything.

    Again - if you find a donor platform...the above applies.

    A guy in S. Florida did a complete hellcat conversion on a 06 Magnum, dash, interior, right down to the red key-fob working. Must have a donor car and transplant everything.

    I'm sure that by now everyone interested has subscribed and is watching, but there's been 2 new episodes since.

    This is better than watching Netflix! Who knew that watching someone drill out spot welds be so riveting !

    Really surprised me how much just bolts into the older LX cars. (Basically everything) like legos.

    Thats a shame. Like a lot have commented you can see the front passenger side lift leg not touching the car the whole time.

    As for a replacement, I don't know about Colorado but I could have one off cl in a few hours.

    Yeah, that's pretty hard. I'm glad he wasn't hurt.
