Possible sure I guess. Foolish yes.

Upgrade what you have.

I'm sure you can get it to bolt in but the electronics integration is probably not going to be easy. I agree it's probably easier to just upgrade what you have or sell it and buy an SRT if that is what you are after.

Yeah man definitely. The SRT8 has the same transmission as the others except for the 5.7 HEMI and the engine will fit no problems.

I am not sure if the exhaust will match up perfectly or anything about the ECU, however.

Wrong.

3.7 and 6.1 both use the NAG1 trans, though I believe they are slightly different versions.

4.7 and 5.7 both use the 5-45RFE.

Bottom line is this: If the OP is asking this question, he's likely not capable of doing the swap. We're pretty much feeding a troll here.

Bangarng - Sorry, didn't mean that to sound so dickish. Was instead intending a much more informative tone.
