Hi folks, I started my 5.7 Hemi swap a while ago a I thought I would share the progress. I was given a 04 Durango truck engine that suffered from hydro lock. Rebuilt it with stock components and fired it up on the stand. I used stock wiring harness and ECM, as well as accelerator pedal and fuel pump. I used HP Tuners to tweak the ECM (manual transmission, disable rear O2 sensors, disable some diagnostic codes, etc.). I made a custom oil pan and pickup - took hemi pan and c-body pan and combined the two. I could buy Milodon pan, but I was concerned about the idler arm notch that the pan is missing, plus $250 seemed high to me. After I welded the pan I leak tested it using penetrating dye and developer, found a few pin holes, fixed, tested again. It holds 7 quarts of oil. Next I found a small block 727 case and swapped my big block 727 internals. For engine mounts I used small block mounts and made adapter plates. Took me a while to get them right.
