I'm not sure but the charger never came with a 2.7L engine, if you mean the 5.7 HEMI it can be done, everything is available, but it will cost some serious coin and time search out the bits and pieces to put it together, but everything you need can be found at swap meets, local wrecking yards and of course, mopar dealers
being that you have a complete donor car the swap would be easy enough, one thing to keep in mind is the fuel management system and ECM will be different between the two. you may want to research the swap before you dive into it. it most likely will be cheaper to find a low millage motor at a wrecking yard that the same displacement and generation.
sounds like you have blown head gasket, or cracked head, did the motor run hot, if so, you can try head gasket, maybe you will get lucky, also i would replace intake gaskets, parts should be anywhere from 50.00 to 200.00 dollars, depends were you get them,need to clean out cyclinder with antifreeze in it, and check other ones too, pull plugs out get somebody to turn motor over watch for antifreeze coming out of spark plug holes, maybe you can put head gasket on and keep on riding...
Should just plug in (2 prongs) Not sure if you have Lumina van (on firewall just left of steering column under instrument panel) or sedan/coupe (driver side under dash, on passenger side of steering column)
I would first check the fuse panel & see if fuse is burned out. The next thing I would check is the switch, wiggle it sideways, etc to see if the contacts are dirty. Last, these motors sometimes go bad, as mine did, so I got another seat for $50 at the wrecking yard & just exchanged it. There is also a slight possibility that the wire harness came unplugged under the seat or at the switch, but that is pretty remote. Rick
