|Jcar516||Whats up guys. Been a while since I’ve been in here. I completed my 5.9 swap a couple years ago and I’ve been running it on a 5.2 mt computer. I’m looking to finally get it flashed to the correct vin to match my jeep and fuel maps for the 5.9. Can anyone recommend a place I can send it out to? Thanks|

|jpin86||I picked one of these up in the junkyard off a Ram truck for $5.00. This works great for our application. The starter cable is 60 inches long. Plenty of cable to string across the top of the bell housing to the starter. You have to bend the starter end a little to point the cable up a little, and the end that goes on the fuse box has to be bent 90 degrees.|

As for your question on headers, I too just have summit block hugger headers. They gave me the clearance I needed.

|jpin86||I may end up going that route, but I'm not to crazy about the looks of the block huggers. I did find a picture of the shorties on an engine in a truck and there's no way they'll fit.|

I have the summit hugger headers with a 2.5 collector. They are fine. Not anything like custom, but they suit the need for a tight space economically.

I've been reading that a set of 92-93 5.2 stock manifolds flow just as good as a set of shorties. They have a 2 1/8 collector compared to the 1 7/8 collectors of the later manifolds.
I'm concerned about the shape of the tubes on the shorties that I'm seeing. There just isn't a lot of room on the drivers side.

On my Hemi, the starter wires simply run from the passenger side, behind the heads and basically across the top of the upper bell housing. Just had to make sure it was clear of the headers. I did run a heat sleeve on those (and many other) wires.
And speaking of headers, I run a set of shorties. They work well, but the exhaust was definitely the most challenging part of my swap.

|jpin86||What are y’all running for exhaust (manifolds, headers, single dual). I set my manifolds in place it’s a tight squeeze, but they’ll work. I really don’t want to run block hugger headers. Anyone running shorties or full length headers?|

|jpin86||For those that are running a driver side starter, how did you run your starter wire?|

Just some info for anyone doing the 5.9 engine swap. The inlet to the TJ heater core is 3/4 inch and the 5.9 is 5/8. I found a hose,
Napa part number 10702, that has a 3/4. 5/8 ends. It’s shaped like a z but I cut off the one end and it worked perfectly. The othe hose is a dayco part number 80407. It has a 90 degree end and is 60 inches long. This will wrap around the back of the engine and connect to the water pump pipe. It’s plenty long and will need trimmed. The Napa hose was $19.99 and the Dayco hose was $9.99 at advance auto parts.
