    I am new to this forum but had A bodies all my life.i recently acquired a 2012 ram 5.7 complete with engine harness, no pcm.i would like to put it in my 1970 duster 4spd,Bolting the engine in the car seems easy enough ie mounts , exhaust and mds delete . I would like to use the factory fuel injection and possibly the vvt system . Called mopar performance about using their crate motor installation kit and was told it will not work on this year engine. Has anyone use the mopar kit on engine other than their crate motor

    Thanks I was looking at them and also megasquirt and the Mopar kit seemed be the best fit, because I could not see much difference between controlling a challenger 5.7 and a truck 5.7

    One more place that I forgot about, that I may very well use myself! Good prices, and they seem to know their stuff.

    I believe somewhere in the "new" Mopar harness documentation it states it is for 2014 and newer engines.
