So i just picked up a 5.7L hemi

Just like the title says. I picked up a 5.7 out of a 2003 Dodge Ram for 280 bucks. Its seized up but the previous owner is pretty sure its a bearing seize.

I have 3 months before I get back from Iraq so I have plenty of time to figure out how I am going to do this. My goal is $5000 or less. Its cool if I go over, I am not going to skimp on anything I just want to see if it could be done. Obviously the engine may be in worse shape than I hope but, its complete and worse case scenario I should be able to get my money back from the parts on it.

I know I really need an LX motor or one out of a GC or Commander but I think I can make it work. Time will tell.

2014 2 Door Red Rubicon.

Bone stock except for a Spiderwebshade Safari Top.

I think that it needs to be a 07 and up for the Jeep speed shops PCM to work correctly. You might want to call them and make sure.

Rock Krawler, Poison Spyder, Rigid Industries, Currie and more.

At this point I have no direction for the motor yet. I read on a Ram forum that I MAY be able to make it a MDS motor if I change a few things. I am also looking into running a completely new wiring harness and PCM. Again I have no plan yet. I am going to do my own exhaust I know that I am also looking for a tranmission. We will see I will keep posting on here with updates... well when I get back from Iraq.
