    So what would it take to make a 6.4L work with the msd hemi ign box? The reluctor wheel isnt the same as a 5.7 or 6.1? Im new too this hemi stuff but im intrigued by the idea of lighter, more powerful tech than my w-2 340. Getting tired of race fuel

      The short answer is you wouldn't want to use the MSD. Not only does it use a different wheel but the 392 has other features that you don't want to throw away by using a carburetor. Instead you'd use the factory PCM with an aftermarket wiring harness.

      I haven't seen this shared yet on here, but I'm assuming that everyone knows that Mopar is getting into the Hemi swap game. Here is one of the pages out of their catalog.

        Any where else that has complete kits like that so you don't have to piece it together, other than Bouchillon? They seem to be on the high side on prices. I've found the hotwire auto for harnesses, tanks inc. for fuel system help, TTI for headers and mounts, but I'm trying to piece together a list of what I need for my swap into my 75 Swinger, but haven't found a definitive list to use as a good reference of what and where.

        How have I not come across this place before? Basically follow the instructions on the site and it'll help take care of making your own harness, other than that I saw a couple tid bits on recommended distributors(looks like sponsors) and the oil pan/motor mounts needed.

          I just saw this one, I have just posted a new thread in the new Hemi swap category. It details my effort to install a 6.1 in my 72 Demon. I will start posting here.

            Wouldn't it be left to more detail in your own thread. More pictures and responses. I would think.

                Take it to a machine shop and have it checked out before you attempt to assemble it

                    Same.

                    Timing cover pulley stand off distance different - can’t use a 5.7/6.1 alt on a 6.4.
