Question about 1978 Dodge Magnum

1 Answer

Will a 73 dodge 360 motor replace my 78 360 motor in my magnum

I have a used up 78 dodge 360 2 barrel with EGR and what used to be a spark control computer. I replaced that system to go to an electronic ignition concept. I have friends tell me to get rid of that 2 barrel and get a good solid 4 barrel intake and carb. I found a 73 dodge 360 with these things as a replacement. Will I have any problems swapping the 78 motor for the 73?

    Yes it will work just fine.An engine tuned properly with more power will pull the heavy car around better and get a little better milage. As far as the previous comment, my magnum had a 400 and polluted just fine. I call it prius repellant. Jag v12? NO that engine doesent pollute at all does it? and i'd like to see your mini vs his magnum after an accident.

    OMG ... I thought I would never see anyone make a statement like that ... yes they are interchangeable. your original oil pan may be required. The 4bbl will give you more power when you need, and better gas mileage when you are not using it. Remember to make every day a Sunday.

1986 dodge with a 2001 360 dodge magnum motor 600cfm edelbrock carb, air gap edelbrock intake. new plugs (e3s) new wires new coil new ballast.. is all in time.. wont start help


Are you getting spark? You've put a 2001 engine into a 1986 body. The 2001 engine ran with an engine control module (ECM), the 1986 doesn't have that. The 1986 probably has an electronic ignition module that works with the 1986 coil and 1986 reluctor/distributor. You may want to compare the two distributors and the two coils.

Engine swap


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.

If you have already done the basics like a tune up and fuel filter you need to check for a damaged head. Use a compression tester to check for a problem. Compression should be with in 10 PSI from cylinder to cylinder. Check all cylinders.

The dodge 360 magnum motor tends to crack the head between valves. I have seen this many times.
