I collecting information about my 3Gen Hemi swap. I own a 70's Plymouth Satellite with stock suspension parts.

I've bought a 6.4 Hemi SRT8 from a Grand Cherokee. I also have a A518 RH laying around.

I would like to use my stock K-member for now.

Which parts do I need to make it a running car?

Was thinking about the stand alone PCM with Harness. Are there any other options? Do I need another oil pan and sump? Which motor mounts do I need?

All kinds of questions. Hope to find some help.

Thx, guys!

As for using a 09 and later G3 hemi you'll have to disable the VVT system, it's not hard.

Is there a difference between a 5.7/6.1 and the 6.4 engine, besides cui/liters?

You could buy a Mopar 6.4 conversion/restomod harness and just run the engine as is-I believe it's about $1700. The Jeep 6.4 is a rear sump so you will need a mid sump pan if you want to keep the stock front suspension. If you are going with aftermarket front k member (that deletes torsion bars), you can use the jeep rear sump oil pan as long as the car doesn't sit super low.

Keep in mind the Mopar crate kit only works with 2013-up engines due to the crank reluctor. This can be changed on the older engines, but requires removal of the crank.

The engine I bought has a front sump oil pan.

And the stand alone kit from Mopar can be used for 2014 engines and up as they state on there website.
