Not going with an intercooler, at least for now. I am debating whether to remove the "dodge ram" on the air horn, or leave it there. Would look better without it, but has great potential for allowing plenty of jokes about how poorly built those early dodge trucks were....... 120K miles, 2 dash fires, and then the frame broke. Have to put the engine in a Ford, in order to stand a chance of wearing out the engine, before the chassis......


The swap looks good.
