    Was wondering if anyone has installed a gen3 Hemi in a 62-65 Mopar? If so, what issues? I'm asking specifically about these years, since the engine is located further forward.

    I have one in my 65 coronet,I built my own mounts for the block as none were available when I did mine. I used 2005 truck exhaust manifolds at first but have TTI headers now. Had to notch the lip of the K frame for the Charlies oil pan I used.I have one of the first XV motorsports carbed intake packages on mine.

      Thank you for replying. Did you use a stock K member? What trans did you use?
      I have a 2018 392 Challenger, and I love the engine, and the 8 speed trans, although I think it's optimistic to hope the 8 speed would fit.

      Have you seen the US Cartool tunnel reinforcement they developed to swap in late model OD standard transmissions? Pretty neat idea.

      I have. But maybe I want too much, but my hope is to fit the engine with the stock K member, and because the engine is mounted forward of the later model B body, I'm hoping it will minimize any cutting of the tunnel/ trans crossmember.

      Mancini Racing sells the motor mounts, fabbing the transmission mount wouldn't be too difficult, oil pan should clear with a small notch on the K-member

      I wanted to move my engine to the rear as far as possible so, with tips and pics from DVW, I cut out the transmission hump for clearance. The OEM floor pan is so tight the shape of the KD servo is stamped in! Also fabbed a new cross member. If you want photos let me know. It gave me extra room for my cooling package too.

      Anyone using an overdrive trans? What type? I'm hoping to keep the engine in the stock location, to maybe have some tunnel space.

      Ran a TKO600 for a few years - I ended up doing some slight trans tunnel modifications as it typical for that install and now working on my T56 swap - may need a little bit more modifications than what I already did - to be determined after I get the MS3X up and running
