Engine Swap 6.1 or 6.4

ok so the time has come and im am in the market for a wrecked SRT8 and I know a 6.1L is swappable but ive been told by a lot of people including a service advisor from Perry Chrysler in National City California that I should just swap a 6.4L from a WK2 will that be the same as swapping a 6.1L. will it work or not that is the question.

Re: Engine Swap 6.1 or 6.4

I would assume so. The engines are basically the same just bigger displacement. I say go balls out and get the 6.4L and shoehorn it in there.

Re: Engine Swap 6.1 or 6.4

Here's a link to a thread that's already been started. It sounds like the wiring harnesses you'll need to swap out will give you your greatest problems not throwing CEL codes. You're in San Diego so definitely check your emission laws concerning older engine swaps. Good luck and keep us informed of your progress.

WK05 4.7 swap to 08 SRT8 6.1
