you don't want to swap them, can get a lot of trouble for it.

for swapping the motor?

even if they are Dodge they are not same model and parts are not the same. You can do it, but then you might damage something else.

ferdiv is correct. Even the difference between a 318 and a 360 could mean the wrong trany and cause heavy load on undersized trany. Also, may require different radiator, and also the PCM computer would need to be changed.
