ummm y a dodge motor AND trans your goinna have huge issues with the trans my auto teach has a dodge and complains about having to adjust something in the trans every other oil change and my boss had one to and his just gave out at it cost alot to get fixed(college student 1500-200 is alot to me) but yeah i suggest going with soething else
with mine it is a 1976 300d with a ford 302 5.0L form a 1986 mustang had2300 mile on car(engine was bought in 86 by my dad bought the car in 85 so had this car forever im 18 and i have owned it since i was 14) yes it is from the"ugly ones" but i like them so :P it is fuel injected and gets decent MPG but ppl laugh when i but this guys 05 civic(black tinted window big rims underglow ricy stuff) without trying. but yeah it slips the tires good (sometimes the torque is a little annoing near cops because if i move my foot down more the 1/2 inch it slips the tires yeah it is and auto BUT i bought a 5 speed need to mood the bellhouseing to have a hydrolic clutch) so little more control and smoothness(ford auto trans's arn't smooth PERIOD) i love the car because it drives like a mercedes benz but ha the torque of a muscle car(will have intake, cam, heads, headers, custom duel single sided exhaust, injectors, and Engine managment computer adjustable from laptop interface. once i get all the money saved)for now just like a stock 5.0 mustang without smog!
Things still needed: Car "swims" when at freeway speed so front susp. bushings, front end aline., wheel bearings, brakes, emer. brake pads, and finish new interior install, headlight aline, fogilight aline, and badging install
it has replaced my bmw as a daily driver b/c my bmw decieded he did not want to go get parts for the benz and blew the water pup seal out warping the head and cracking the block so e30 is going to junk yard so yeah now i drive my benz or my moms 740il(SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO comfy) so yeah go for it
o BTW i have 16 inch miglia mello bellos on it with pirilli p zero neros and tint(70% front sides 5%rear sides and rear window going with charcoal non metallic) to come after wheel bearings and suspention bushings
