Ram hemi swap

Asked by Aug 20, 2016 at 01:12 AM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab SB

Question type: General

So I'm trying to find a replacement hemi for my
2004 5.7 1500. I found a great price on a 2006
hemi but I believe it has the MDS system and I
don't think my 2004 does. Would it be possible
to swap out the heads to the 2006 and use this

1 Answer


We don't really like engine swap questions here on the forum. Why? Because there are too many variables, too many mid year changes. I can tell you that in 2006 Dodge Rams the MDS system debuted. According to Wikipedia it was only on the 1500 series trucks in that year. Perhaps a website like ramforumz.com would be of some help. Swapping out your heads would be putting possibly worn out parts on a newer fresher engine. Best of luck with it.
