U will need the all the engine wiring and sensors, so buy the complete engine from a salvage yard, u will need the engine computer (PCM), a larger radiator will be optional but a good idea. the engine will bolt in as it is the same block with 2 more cylinders tacked on, but buy new engine mounts. You will need to confirm that your trans is in good shape as well to handle the extra load/power, but it will bolt up as i said the block is really just a pumped up 5.9 V8, it will also require the exhaust to be modified, if u can get a used system of a salvage yard do that, it will say you allot of money.

Are the tranfer cases from a 97 dodge ram 1500 5.9l the same as a 99


There were a total of 5 Transfer cases for the four wheel drive Ram. All were part time and had a low range of 2.72:1. The 1500 featured a NV231 and NV231HD. The NV241 was standard on V8 2500 Rams. The 2500 and 3500 V10 and Diesel featured a NV241DLD from 1994-1997. In 1998, the NV241DHD became a option for all 2500 Rams and was standard on 3500 Rams from 1998-2002. Hope this helps so your going to have to find out which one you have NV231 or the NV231HD. Good luck
