375

A 5.7 or 5.9 should bolt in, since both of those engines have been used in the past in Dakotas. Just make certain that you have all the proper parts including flywheel, pressure plate, clutch assembly, throw-out bearing, etc. and can get it hooked up to the vehicle's computer properly if necessary. I don't think f you'll need an adapter kit for the tranny. I have plans to put a 5.7 in my 2002 4x4, but it will be backed up by an 8 speed auto.
