I have a dodge ram with a 5.7 hemi. I hate how the motor is back and is difficult when changing plugs, Is it possible to move the motor forward and what changes would I need to make other than welding new motor/trans mounts and adjusting the drive shaft ?

Asked by May 20, 2017 at 07:27 AM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT Quad Cab 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

My concern is the radiator, and fan. How can I modify the front to move the
motor forward?

You would go through all that cost and customization just to have ease of replacing the spark plugs? How often do you replace them? Pay someone to do it, and you will save a boat load of money in the long run.

It would be easier to just remove the engine, change the plugs and reinstall. Get platinum plugs and change them at 100,000 miles.
