Gen 5 Engine in a Gen 2

Do you think it is possible. Found a few gen5 engines on ebay for 16k. I think it would be sweet to do the swap.

It will fit and run as long as you use the Gen 5 ecu/harness or moTec standalone. While you are at it swap in the TR6060.

You can swap in a Gen3 motor and it's much less work. Gen3 will run on a Gen2 ecu with a few wire changes.

Cool for a "one off" factor but considering GenV engines typically dyno between 550-570whp, that's a lot of coin for the power you're getting.
For a similar amount into your Gen2 engine you could easily have a heads/cam/tune Paxton setup with almost enough left for a trans upgrade if you get your pricing right.

Just make sure you get an engine that isn't impacted by the block contamination issue.

And since it's your money - DO IT!

This sounds pretty interesting! I'm with 99RT10&GTS and think the hellcat engine would be a bad idea though.

As tempting as that would be, I'd keep it Mopar but I will say an LS7 in a Miata is such a blast!!!

The problem is it still will only make about 600rwhp NA. A HELLCAT with $3k in upgrades will make closer to 700-750rwhp.

You do know we are messing with you...right? LOL. Do the GEN-II to GEN-IV heads and intake upgrade and wala...a poor man's GEN-V. Also, a Hellcat motor is not NA...so whoopteedo about 700+hp. Also, a Hellcat engine is tall...won't fit under the clamshell. I've seen a thing or two so I know a thing or two (copyright Farmer's Insurance). But I still say Do It..Come On Do It (copyright Predator)
