I want to put a late engine and nv3500 in my 60 wilys wagon , but I dont want the hasel of all the computer stuff, I have been doing a lot of reserch on the dak, and have found nothing on engine convertions, which is areal shame because I think the are terific engines , My father has a 93 DD sport, and I remember the day it was new. now it has 150K and its still awsome, It's never been in the shop!! I called painless wiring and it was pianful the respnce they gave me, Mopar dosent want anybody doing engine swaps,and that is why I will just do a carb insted, thanks for the reply, would you have any other advice to give vern? Thanks Gray.

if you use a 88-94/95 trans you,ll have the o/d without all the wiring issues that go with the 96up trans have

DC do have a M1 4 barrel carb intake for the premag 3.9 i don,t have the part #,put they are out there i,ve seen them for sale,check some of the mopar sites Moparts.com,Alpar.com,dakotatrucks.com etc i was one on 1 of the sites in the pass month for sale
or use a 87 3.9 2 barrel carb intake

DC also made a electronic dist conversion,hard to find,maybe one of the performance dealers may have some old stock,you can build one with a little work,i did one serveral yrs back with and 318 dist and wiring,changed out the relutor to a slanted 6,[they say this won,t work]but it did and i still have the truck now that runs,just rusted some good parts truck

good luck

you guys do know who produces the engine right? and its sad to hear it being such a avid dodge fan, mitsubishi makes them. but i have a 94 dak with 211,000 on it and i just recently encountered a small vacum leak so no complaints from me

mitsubishi did produce a v6 in the late 80s and early 90s that was use in the grand caravans and other dodge and chrysler minivans. it was never used in a dakota. the pre mag and mag 3.9 v6 is and has always been a dc motor.

318-360 intakes DO FIT on 3.9's with a little band saw cutting. See the video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0i9_qoUIMw

3.9 in video has cut down V-8 Edelbrock Victor W-2 intake & cut down w2 heads!
