Well, they put a 426 hemi in one, but because of the bigger engine dimensions they couldn't use a larger radiator and had cooling problems. Hmmm, not to mention traction problems.

Get a mopar muscle magazine. There are advertisers who offer motor mount swaps and oil pans for the Dakota's. Saw it in my magazine.

One is called Schumacher Creative Services

They didn't list a website though.
