I just put a 96 360 magnum in my 97 dodge 4x4 that had a 318 in it. Yes it does fit. I noticed that the flex plate on the 360 has balance weights on it and the 318 does not. Make sure the plate stays with the 360. The torque converter and exhaust manifolds bolted right up. The 96 360 engine had different connector plugs on the Map sensor, Crank Sensor and Tps. Get those off of your 318.
I did notice that with the 96 PCM for the 360 my fuel guage was off quite a bit. The 360 will run off of the 318 computer at least if your in a bind for Money.

I have a 1998 dodge Dakota 5.2 l that I'm thinking of swapping. ...what years are comparable and with what vehicles ......and how difficult would it be to upgrade to a 5.9l r /t model engine ?


the 360 and 318 are basically the same engine except the 318 is externally balanced and the 360 is internally balanced be sure when you do the swap get the flywheel and comes with the balancer i believe they are the same from 96-01 before they went to the 4.7 engine

I hope I can give enough info for someone to be able to help. My friends 318 in his 1996 1500 locked up. So he bought a used 1996 1500 with a 360 in it and a bad transmission. Both are 2wd one bad engine...


first of all you need to use everything that was on the 360 on the 360. change every thing back then take its wiring harness and computer and use them and everything should work. 1996 and newer all get certain commands from the pcm (computer) and without those commands the vehicle will not work right. hope i was of help good luck
