3.7 to crd swap

I'm looking at swapping my 3.7 to a crd. I know the fuel system and ecu as well as the motor I need. Will it bolt up to my 3.7 drivetran? And what else would I need?

Re: Pondering swapping

99% of the time, a motor swap isn't worth it...with all the electronics on these vehicles it is almost always a nightmare to get it to work properly.

Safe yourself the time and hassle and sell what you have now, and buy a vehicle with the motor that you want.

Just do an egr delete and that will take care of the problem before you have it.
