Dieselgod20, was the viper parts from a 1st gen viper engine? Have never heard of viper internals able to be swapped into a truck engine.

new member here. I have my old 95 dodge i drove as a company truck for the place i worked for, one day i got a call to come pick " Grandpa" up. Never got the story on the reason why its called that but i stuck with it. haha.
So i am fed up with the 47rh, my truck has a spicer 70 one legger (wtf).
So my plans are to rebuild the magnum v10. Coupled to a nv4500 5 speed. my gear ratio is a 3.50 so i have been able to get 18mpg going from Boise,id to Gooding, Idaho.
My plans are for a bottom end redo to get rid of the 8:5:1 cr and bump it to 11:1. from what i have heard, the cam profile stock is one of the worst configurations. i bought a first generation viper intake since the torque is the same on the viper v10 and the truck v10, so i figured it couldnt hurt. ive been wondering how to port the monstrosity of an intake on the truck. any tips would be good. going with a set of ross or kb pistons, porting heads. and new cam. headers are going on it as well. not sure what i will do as far as rockers and such. but the auto has to go. went to jalopy jungle to pull the clutch assembly out of a truck ( 25 bucks ) so i got all that. need to find a 5 speed for the old guy now. 24 year old and this is my 6th dodge truck, the others had easily modifiable 318s and one dog of a 360.

Keep us posted on the mods you do. I feel the V10 has a lot of potential, but it seems very few have explored it.

I ran VP C12 race fuel and a 180 deg. Thermostat. And sled puller. You can use the crankshaft out of a 3rd gen viper due to journal widths are the same but the journal diameter is bigger, a good machine shop can bore the main journals to fit it, but some machining may have to be done to the block for the crank weighs, you can also use their connecting rods which are longer but you have to make sure your deck clearances will be ok
