Help on building V8 Dakota!

6763 6
I have an 01 Dakota with a 3.9 v6. I know a 318 and 360 will bolt up to the trans. Question....Will the 5.7 Hemi bolt up? I also know that engine mounts would have to be made. If it's too much work, I will probably just go with a 360. Any advice or answers would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I'd be leery of bolting the Hemi to the 42, or 46RE auto transmissions listed above, as well. All are prone to overheating when coupled with torque over 375lbs.
That's the reason Dodge and Jeep use the 5 speed automatic behind it.
