manufacturers can change specifications through model years, so it may be different also on modern engines are controlled via electronics so make sure you get the ECU with the new engine.

a visual side by side check is the easiest way to tell if they are the same

I'm thinking about purchasing a 1998 dodge ram cummins turbo diesel, I already own two 1997's and love them. No one seems to know if dodge put the exact same engine in. They appear to be the same does anyone know for sure if dodge put the same in for these two years?
