cant use the heads. the 08's have 16 spark plugs.
how does that stop you? it still only has 8 coils. its just like the srt engines...one coil does both plugs in the same cylinder.

After a bit of shopping around, I found out that fel-pro's head gasket (part number 26157PT) for the 4.7 is the same part number for 2000-2008 dakota 4.7's.

This is looking promising, if the headgaskets are the same I don't see why the new heads wouldn't fit... but getting them to fit and making it run are two different things.
as long as the tone rinds are right...03 up had 32 tooth...02 and older had 16


but i dont think it would bee too hard to up date to the 03+ computer for the 01-02 guys.

The 2008+ 4.7 pistons are DRASTICALLY different for the 2008s revised combustion chamber design. The 08 pistons look like they will be REQUIRED to run the 08 heads. The 2008 heads also have a vastly revised exhaust flange and ports.
how is this? too much of a dome? got pics? and exhaust isnt an issue.

Well the 2008 piston has multiple DEEP valve reliefs in them. I have pictures on my computer at work from a 2008 shortblock that was on Ebay. Exhaust is an issue if you think you are going to bolt a standard 4.7 header to it... It WON'T FIT!
that because the compression is higher on the 08+ block

and mr intelligent....obviously if the ports and bolt pattern are different, an 07 and older header wont fit...but i say its not a issue to get the head to work on the 07 and older 4.7

Well the piston is still the same depth in the block. The CHAMBER is VASTLY different in the 08 head and It looks as if the actual 99-07 pistons will hit the 08 cylinder head in places.
looks and does are 2 different things...and custom pistons arent that big of a deal. post these pics when you get them from your computer.

Well looks and does are pretty much a certainty... Remember the 08 head has the 2nd squish area and 2nd spark plug. Thats what the relief looks like it clears. Its shallower in that area than a normal 4.7 piston.
they are still different...remember, dodge doesnt build a truck with full race tolerances...they build them on the SAFE side of things

Cmon Michael, this guy knows his stuff...he saw the inside of his last motor after he blew it up.
And according to his posts on the chevy forums he says he has put an 08 motor in his truck which is why it was so fast....he had the videos to prove it.
Ok, he's full of shit, claimed the videos of a hemi on nitrous were him, never did the swap he bragged about to the chevy forum....and probably none of the other stuff he has claimed on the various forums.

Too bad he's spreading his idiocy here now too, guess the chevy forum and dt got tired of him....so on to the next one.
and he's from texas? or did he wash up from katrina? or rita?...whatever that water storm was called....:D

Swapping out tone rings wouldn't be a problem as I have some spare ones from a 01.

I am curious if an 08 motor could be run off of a 01 computer, switching from an 01 computer to an 03+ computer would probably require rewiring everything like josh did on his hemi swap since the 03+ have four plugs and the other have three. I really don't see why it wouldn't work, it is the same basic motor, I'm sure some connectors would need to be changed and a different tune but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

I am not surprised that the pistons have recesses in them with the upped compression ratio and different head design, it could still be possible that they will fit on a stock older motor. For me personally I would more then likely be changing pistons if I ever tried putting 08 heads on a older motor anyway.
josh had to do alot of extra wiring because the ( i think) bus system was different between the 01 and older and the 02 and older (possibly 03)

but i dont think you would need to rewire anything....maybe just change some pinouts. you would just delete your tcm and put your 4th plug in with the 03+ pcm........i think...im a bit tired right now...just got done pulling the engine and tranny

I have a 5 speed so I don't think I even have a TCM... I think the problem is that the 3 plugs from a 01 computer might not plug into the spaces in an 03+ computer. I think the connectors are different.

Would there be any reason I couldn't just keep my 01 computer and get it retuned?
ahh...that makes it easier...and you should be be able to do it with the 01, just the tone ring swap isnt very fun...the cam one is easy, the crank one you have to pull have the bottom apart...including the girdle.


but i think i still have some 4.7 pcm plugs here....you would just have to put your wires in it.....if interested, just let me know.

It was enough to keep you from coming back with a real response :wave:

We all know you hate nick and chris, we get it. Even if you might have a remotely valid point, it's getting drowned in your own obsession. You're tarnishing your own credibility.
take your stupidity and lack of credibility elsewhere....you obviously came to this thread JUST to talk shit to adam...move your e-penis along.

What's the difference between my post and adam foaming at the mouth about what chris/nick have/have not done? I know you've seen the bashing go on at DT, so F you and the horse you rode in upon.

There is a guy on the jeep boards claiming he is running a stroked Gen 2 4.7. I believe he posts on here. He should be able to shed some light on the topic
excuse me? i dont frequent DT much at all...there are very few threads that i remark in or read.

and adam foaming at the mouth...have you ever even met the guy? i have had my own dealings with nick....right when he was starting his airram stuff and then again a few years later


as for the difference in the threads...yours just seem childish.

so one last time...take your e-penis crap either else where or to fight club....or i will be reporting your post.

I've met Nick personally, yes.

The point in my original and subsequent statements was not to defend the vendor in question but to instead call into question the constant bashing of the vendor to the point where nobody really listens anymore. It's very much like crying wolf. I dont ride any of the vendor bandwagons-e.g. I met up with Marty over at KRC just yesterday- because honestly they all have their flaws. And I have made a point that is in line with the original topic in this thread. If you really want to make an issue of it, make a thread about your newfound love for me in Fight Club or report the post. Whatever makes you sleep at night.
*** in disguise...gotta hate those. simple as can be...you wanna argue with adam..make a FC thread...if not...chose to keep arguing here and earn a ban...i would say no brainer, but you havent caught on yet.
