    Will a 5.7 fit in the trunk of a magnum?

    Anyone tried to fit a complete (oil pan to intake) 5.7 in the trunk of a Magnum? I feel like the hardest part will be getting it in there.

    I would say yes although you may have to tip it to one side as it may not fit straight up and down (vertical).

    I would definitely borrow a friend's truck. Seems like everyone you know has a truck anyway

    Please don't! You're going to tear the crap out of your interior doing that - getting it in and out. Worst case scenario if you don't know someone with a truck - go to Home Depot and rent one of their small trucks for an hour (like $20 I believe). Save your Magnum!

    The floor of the Magnum's trunk area is not designed to support that much weight I'm sure. You will do more than $500 damage to your car. Please rent a truck if you don't have a friend with one.

    And I was hoping this thread was going to be about a rear engine conversion!

    It will and not an issue at all. Sold a 6.1 complete to a magnum Owner. I suggested he take out the tray and folding floor, load the area with cardboard and some wood. Using a engine hoist, we loaded it in sideways and placed it in the tire wheel and leaned it forward. Using cardboard and wood blocks, it did not move after a 7hr drive back home. No damage to the Magnum...

    Awesome, thanks for the info! Already drove the truck at this point but I'll keep that in mind for future projects. You the man, Hemmisary.

    I once put a diesel engine in a Dodge Magnum: it was a '78 Magnum, I removed the passenger seat and slid the crated motor up a ramp into the car. At home I used a come along from the rafters in the garage. No cars or engines were harmed in making this move.

    I once hauled a 455 Pontiac short block in the trunk of my 70 Mustang Fastback, from the salvage yard, and to and from a machine shop!

    It might make for an interesting thread - some of those cockamamie / crazy / outlandish things we did around building engines, destroying engines, etcetera (no dumbazz racing BS) when we were younger and stupider...

    Younger and dumber, but also stronger and poorer.
