soon to start 4.7 to 5.7 hemi swap...need help please

So I am soon to start a 4.7 to 5.7 hemi swap...my 2003 4.7 is close to 200,000 miles so I want to start planning out my swap just in case my engine takes a crap..knock on wood though. So I am looking for knowledge of anyone who has worked with this material before. So first off what year hemi works best and out of what vehicle should I get the 5.7 out of? Secondly will my 03 4.7 tranny fit directly to the 5.7 or will I have to make changes
or get a new tranny? Thirdly what new wiring, wiring harnesses, etc will I have to get? I already know that I will have to fab up a new oil pan and that is no problem. I have probably left out much info so please feel free to bring it up. Thank you everyone for your help.

I would suggest that you start by reading a bunch of the Hemi swap threads. A lot of you questions will be answered there.

i would go with a 2005 or newer Hemi. What trans do you have and are you 2wd or 4wd? Get the engine harness and PCM as a minimum. If you can get the engine bay harness and DBW pedal that would be a good idea.

I can't even find 4.7s anywhere local to me. I was trying to get one for a parts for my Dakota and no luck. The 4.7s you do find are around 2500 for just the block. Once my 4.7 goes I am either going to do a Hemi swap or go diesel.

Good luck with your build.
