Asked by Sep 04, 2014 at 08:43 AM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4 Dr ST 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We want to replace my trucks enigne next summer.... So before I go and get a new
engine, are the 318 and 360 the same block and can they be mounted in the same motor
mounts? I have heard yes and no on this one. Also, if they can, would the tranny need to
be upgraded or would mine be fine? I have the 318
