Not that I've seen, the 45's are just more plentiful. Boosted 4.7 swap with a 70 though..... [emoji848]

Man its sad that they had to sell their project before they finished it up. I’d love to know the power that thing could put down

I apologize for hijacking this thread lol. I’ve done a bit more research into the whole 2009 2500 eagle hemi idea i mentioned awhile ago, and its not looking TOO horrible so far. The 2009 HD trucks use the same TIPM as all 2008 MY trucks, so hardware-wise the TIPM is the same as the 08. Additionally, it looks like the dash wiring harness is the same between ‘08 and ‘09. So its pretty safe to assume the headlamp-to-dash wiring harness is the same/very similar as well. That definitely doesn’t guarantee the CAN-bus system is the same between the years, but so far things are looking pretty good in terms of the electric side. I’m hoping the only major electrical changes are in the PCM and the eagle engine harness. I’m trying to find an ‘09 HD service manual so I can hopefully compare the wiring harnesses between the years, but I haven’t had any luck there so far

I’m not really looking into this myself cuz it’ll be a GOOD WHILE before I’m prepared for an engine swap, but this caught my curiosity lol

Before I bought my 2011 Hemi Ram I had a 2005 and a 2006 Ram 1500 short beds regular cab 2 wheel drive both with a 4.7, 5 speed and 392(posi) gears both bought new. They had 235/70/17 rims and tires. Put K&n drop in filter, flowmaster delta flow 50 in single exhaust and used a Superchips cortex tuner. Trucks ran great, tuner added most power. Had a few quarter mile passes on both trucks, they weren't as fast as my currently owned hemi 14.01@ 99.5 mph with a 2.05 60 foot. (same mods as 4.7) but they were mid 15 second trucks. Gas mielage was around 20 on highway, 15-16 local driving. The 4.7 was a good motor for me. Put 80,000 miles with no problems. Since 2005 the only part I replaced was a wheel speed senson on my 2011. Best 3 trucks I have ever owned. My 2011 has 115,000 miles and has about 20 quarter miles passes on it. Also towed camper and boat with all of them. Had 3 other trucks over the years, 2 Fords and 1 chevy. Ram by far the best. Son also uses rams for his windshield busisness. Wish they still made single cab short beds as I would buy another one.

You've obviously missed some of the posts about it lol. Yes it is, in fact for the later CAN bus trucks it's almost ridiculously easy; as of right now ZF swaps are almost plug-n-play back to 2007 I think he said. There are more than a few early 3rd gen ZF swaps running around but the one I've actually talked to (besides the company that makes the retrofit harness) has a 2004 with a 6.1 stroker and an 8HP70. If you're that interested I can send it to you. He's actually on this forum: @Harleyc04
