I have an 06 300c AWD. I now want the 6.1L engine and with the prices falling, I wont be waiting too much longer. Is there any forseeable problem with AWD sytem creates for this swap? Has it been done yet ?
That's because crate hemis are really expensive, I think in the $6k range, a PPP hemi costs a bit more than that, but hey, 426 Might as well go all out eh?
I wouldn't worry much about the transmission, they were used up until a year or two ago in the top of the line AMGs because of their durability. However, yeah, being an AWD setup you might have some work to do.
I think this is a great idea! Wit the prices falling like you said, and now there are more wrecks available, I was wondering about putting the 6.1 in my 05 Hemi Ram 4x4.
I understand the 5.7 and the 6.1 are basically the same engine block but the 6.1 is bored and has some different parts. So it should work. Good luck and post some pics when you get it done.
