He guys I have looked around and have had a hard time finding cheap create engines.Buy cheap I mean my price rang is between $4-5,000. I need a engine thats somewhere between 4-500HP. If you guys know if any websites that would really help.

Side note. How hard would it be to put a chevy engine in my 98 1500 dodge ram? I have found tons of cheap chevy engines.

People have put sbc 350 in the Ram, but it requires a bit of work. Probably won't get you in below your mark unless you do a lot of work yourself.

There are lots of companies out there offering stroker magnum motors. I would go with a high torque stroker in the 402-408 ci range (depends on how your block cleans up). That is doable with your budget, and should net 375-425 hp depending on heads and cam running pump gas.

I have no personal experience with the Hughes/KRC 360/426 stroker, but it is NOT a proven design and it has rod ratios that are too small and everything that would indicate high cylinder wall loads. It may be ok for a race engine, but everyone I talked to recommended against it for daily driver use. Besides, you could build a big block for that kind of money and have all the spots milled for the sensors. Or even go with a 340 replacement block for 416ci. Or an R3 siamese block.

IMO, stick with a 360/408 if you are using a 360 magnum block.

Well I am looking at this engine:

It seems like it would also be good for a daily driver too. But if i decided to get a stroke kit for a daily drive the 408 seems like it would be better?

Those engines are LA based blocks, not Magnum based blocks. I would call and see if they are available in Magnum. It would save a LOT of hassels.

Make CHRYSLER
Engine Type V8
Engine Size 5.9L/360
Engine Family Mopar small block LA
Fuel Delivery Carburetor

Stick with a Dodge engine, and fuel injection. Much easier to keep it registered in some states if it has the same make of engine. Since you are in the marines and I know duty stations can change.

You could punch out the stock engine and add some better heads, intake, headers. And get a fair amount of power out of it. Heck even supercharge it and forget about naturally aspirated.

nowadays the technology for turbos has come a long ways, the most power and daily driveability youre going to achieve from forced induction is going to be turbo. if i could afford it id do twin turbo in a heart beat. get some concave pistons to lower the compression a tiny bit, flow your heads and get the biggest headers you can find, set up a really good fuel management system, and pump 18psi into it. that oughta blow yer hair back.

yeah but superchargers blow up faster and for as something a powerful as a V8 I think super is the way to go where if its a 4 banger or a V6 go with turbo.

Here is the thread I started on the 440 crate motors, there is a local shop here in SC that can get them, the owner chimed in on this thread on page two.

The biggest difference between a supercharger and a turbocharger is where in the power band you gain the power. Their power bands do over lap a little but generally a engine driven set up will give you power right of idle to mid rpm and the exhaust driven set up will give power from mid rpm and up.

Or, with a turbo, you can just do boosted launches, if your trans is up for it....

Is this charger gonna be for just DD street use, or racing/having fun?
