I own a 2001 Dakota Sport 2wd with a 3.9 V6 & 5 speed manual transmission. I want to swap it out with a V8. What do I need to accomplish this?
Should be pretty straightforward. The 3.9 V-6 is just the 5.2 with two cylinders lopped off. Not exactly sure off the top of my head, but I'd imagine all you'd need is new engine mounts, wiring harness, and a few other things. Anyone else have any advice?
hi my name is john and my E-MAIL is firstname.lastname@example.org contact me I am interested in your v6 engine 3.9
I am also considering swapping my 3.9 with a V8 but mine is a 88 4x4 how much trouble should I exp ect
88dakota, I believe the V8s were only offered in the "long-nose" versions. You might have to change out your core support and front grille to accommodate a V8. Sorry I'm not more of a Mopar expert.
I have a 98 Dakota With a $ cylinder - The engine took a dump - I would like to install A chevy V8 - Where could I get a kit or info about an engine swap?
Try Turn Key Engine Supply. They're mostly the Gen-3 and 4 small-blocks. If you're looking for help with the older ones, there are a lot of other companies that do those.
I own a 2001 3.9 dodge ram V6. im getting a 5.2 to swap it out with. will i need a new transmission or will it work with my V6 automatic i have now?
I have a 1993 dakota sport x-cab with the 3.9 v-6 but i am wanting to put a sb 350 in the truck and was wondering where or who has done this before
If you're sticking with a Mopar motor, it should be fairly straightforward. The 3.9 V6 is essentially the 5.2 with two cylinders hacked off. But if you're going with a Chevy engine, you might have to get some adapters and special wiring harnesses to make it work.

i own a 2002 dodge dakota 3.9l v6 and want to swap it for a v8 does anybody know where to get a kit and will i need to swap transmissions, i have the 5 speed manual now
my 02 dodge ram 1500 needs a new 4.7 v8 engine but the prices are better for a 5.7 v8 engine ,will it still fit if i upgrade?
5.7 or 5.9? 5.7 is the Hemi, the 5.9 isn't. I'd be surprised if the Hemi is cheaper than the 4.7, but I guess it's possible. If it's between the 5.7 Hemi and the 4.7, go for the Hemi, no contest!
