And I agreed that if he where to upgrade it why sell yourself short with a 5.7L when you could just put in a 6.1L... Go big or go home! I mean if your going to go through all the trouble with an ENGINE/PCM/HARNESS transplant then why go with a smaller 5.7L? The 6.1L is the better of the two and they will take the same amount of time and extensive work to complete.
Now I only brought up building his current 4.7L because he could EASILY make HEMI HP for less then a HEMI SWAP and it would be a DIRECT SWAP "PLUG & PLAY" engine... And he could make even MORE then HEMI HP with a good build up . When you did your swap there was little to nothing that could be done to the 4.7L... So a HEMI swap was a valid alternative and the cost where justified... but that's not the case today and many people dont know whats available for the 4.7L engine... so they just assume nothing can be done.
FYI: There is NO programing issue with the 2000 4.7L... SCT can handle EVERYTHING needed to build a 4.7L to what ever HP level your looking for. Its no longer limited to the factory PCM or a worthless "FLASH" that never workes... SCT can adjust your engine for N/A or Supercharged... So again, PCM issues with the 4.7L are in the past and have been for quite a while.
SPEED SAFE, AIR RAM
