    Thought you guys might like to see my build AKA the "Rusty Pig" its a 74 Dart with a '10 5.7 with a 6 speed manual. Perhaps it may help a few. I can answer any questions .... I'm still working out the MegaSquirt .... maybe I need some help too.

      Sick, I like the wheels. What’s it got for rear differential/gearing? Any interior shots with the 6 speed shifter?

        It has a 9" with 3:50 gears ..... I'm thinking I should have gone a little lower in ratio.

          I am a fan, six speed 6.1 in my 72 Demon. Took me a couple of years and a lot of Bourbon. I went a different way with the shifter tho! 9D75BB33-1431-4823-BB27-CB9E62D781F3.jpeg

                Not a lot of room is there! There are several of us on here that have walked this path. You are not alone. While it was very frustrating for me I got no regrets. Man it is fun to drive.

                Something a little different up front. Don't yell at me but it is a Lexus SC400 subframe and modified suspension.

                  Very cool. I’m working on putting a 2014 5.7 in my 74.

                    A bunch of us have done build threads on here. Check out the tab for it. Might save you a bunch of grief. They are eclectic in the span of creativity. They go from my home built racers version to concourse beauties. Mine is a bit barbaric but I just do not have the resources to pay folks to do the work. Thus it takes years and years and all solutions are limited by my skill set. The swap was the very edge of my abilities honestly. I made a ton of mistakes.

                      The Engine and trans are from a '10 Challenger, so it is the TR6060 Magnum with a STX Shifter.
                      These are the headers I used 70305304-RHKR Hooker headers for Jeep, they now make one similar for Hemi Swaps
