Default Magnum V-8 Swap

I figured I would share here, but have posted a lot on naxja as well. I am on the final touches of my magnum swap. If anyone has questions let me know I have learned a ton while doing this.

what did you do for computer and wiring and did you keep the original cluster or running a custom set up? throttle bodied or carbed?

sorry for the late response.

I used the engine harness from the dodge and spliced each wire to the jeep harness. I kept the original cluster, as long as the donor and recipient use the same bus (in my case, both were CCD) the computer will talk to the cluster. it is fuel injected. Everything from the donor ram went under the hood. Fuel system is simple as the fuel line connections are identical. Just had to kind of reroute the line on my frame a little. If you have any other questions, let me know.
