Question about 1990 Dodge Ram
I have a 1990 Dodge Ram Power W/100 4x4 Pick up, started out as a 5.2 V-8 with 518 auto trans over-drive non-lock up. Truck is still good runner, but engine wore out, so I replaced the 5.2 V-8 (318) TBI with a 1990 5.9 (360) TBI Engine. I changed all sensors and replaced torque converter, the truck runs ok with 5.2 Computer, but I would rather have the 5.9 ECM So that it will runs its best. I have no # to go by....I have recieved 4 computers from a independent rebuilder, and everyone they sent me wouldn't even start the truck. I have been around mopars all my life, this truck is pushing my buttons. Can anyone help? Am I missing something? I was told by a mopar used auto parts store that I could only use a computer from a 1990 5.9 and it had to come out of a Ram Power pick up or a Ramcharger, and it had to be 4x4 and auto trans? Any suggestions? Thanks for this sight at least I feel better knowing someone might have run into the same problem. Mopar For Ever ! Paul
If you told a good dealer parts person what you where trying to do they could get the correct calibration processor for you, you are dealing with a bunch of by the book parts people, can't think outside the box.
