    I have more time in the headers than the rest combined. Had to stop when it got cold. Should be back at it in April. Just tailpipes, cold air intake and some wiring and its running.
    That Princess auto engine stand needs some modifying, its not very good.

    Nice work documenting this swap. I always wanted to see someone do a GEN III Hemi in a 87 Dak. The core support is much more shallow compared to the 91 and up Daks.. Great job with all of the fabrication you've done. Have you made any further progress thus far. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    I understand that. I’ll be keeping my eyes out on this when you get back on it. I always wanted to put one in my old 87 Dak

    I'm gearing up to continue working on the dak. Was too busy last year. I'm switching the efi controller to the holley terminater x that was just released. It can go under the hood. I have no room inside the truck.
    I just have to swap some connectors as the holley has the newer ones.
    Going to come up with a way to prime the engine. I don't like the flexible upper rad hose so might make one out of stainless tubing.
    I have a few things that need to occupy the same space so its getting tight up front.
    I'm hoping to have it running in April.

    Keep up the good work. You would create quite a bit more room by swapping the rad core honestly. Either way you go, you are accomplishing something most people haven’t tried as of yet.

    I may be mounting my rad in the bed to give plenty of room up front.

    That would certainly give you more room.

    I don't really like the idea of a bed mounted rad. I also don't want to change the front.
    If I have to I will modify an aluminum rad and put the upper rad hose where I want it. I'm not against modifying the rad support, I do need room for the ac condenser.
    If I move the battery it would solve the problem I have right now. I'm going to try to run the cold air on the upper rad hose side first and see if I can make it work.
    I will do things the harder way if I think its better.

    DBL.DWN what are you building?

    I’m building this, a 13 Challenger & a 63 Dart. Lots of projects in my life.

    twin turbo 5.7L 01 reg cab Dakota. Going to be mostly a drag truck tho. If i put the turbos up front then ill bed mount the rad. but ill try to stick them close to the fire wall.
    I'm starting the chassis work now. thinking 25.3 or 25.5 spec.

    Cool projects.

    I ordered a 2003 4.7 5 speed dakota back in 2002. I wanted to put a hemi in it but emissions were a concern.
    It was why I picked the 87 as anything 88 and newer needed emission test, now they stopped doing them.
