DjGreggieP's 3.5 swap / Siggy Thread

Wassup Guys, Its GreggieP from Dodgeintrepid.net and today I bring you Some updated pictures and info of my current project.

As you all know my 2.7l and I had a falling out and some piece of my rotating assembly decided that it no longer wanted to be apart of the engine so it said 'That's it I am OUTTA HERE' meanwhile the rest of the engine said 'meh' and kept on working, but unfortunately it consumes more oil than Mcdonalds Deep Fryer now so it had to be parked.

Anyways, I purchased a 2000 Chrysler 300M from SGI Auction for $458 and I have NOW finally started to strip it down for various parts including the mecca 3.5l High Output engine.

Now along the way I had debated about fixing the 300M and as of late I was glad I chose not too.

Anyways, on to some pictures!!

I have 300M Gauges installed now



And I had a Leather Auto Stick bezel for Install



As well as OTIS (Someone let me know if I am wrong with this), complete with HomeLink and Auto-Dimming Mirror and Lit Vanity Mirrors





And Chrome Switches!!



Now the 300M had put up a decent fight for sure, But in the end I have had my way and gotten quite a bit disassembled from it

Roughly where it began



Come on...



Little more...



Haha!! I am winning!!!




This is where I am at from working on it on my days off and when the weather cooperates.

And this is what the lower rad support looks like by the way...



I would say it is a little bit out.


Anyway, that where I am at folks, give me your feedback and let me know what you think!!

I've never torn my Treps down that far to pull/replace the engine. Meaning the bumper cover the support and all the trimmings. It works though hehe. Of course I've just pulled the engine and not the transmission so.. Good luck with the swap mate

Looking good! If it wasn't Spring time, and if I had my passport, and if I had some money, I'd come up and help!

The shape of the front of the 300M was more of a pain to work with lol. And this way I can pull the crank pulley off and do the timing belt and water pump a lot easier now, being able to look straight at everything vs. trying to look at everything from an angle lol

Thanks Cean!! The only reason its taking me as long as it is is mostly due to weather, both cars are sitting outside and with all the rain we have been having lately makes it hard to want to work on anything!! The other 20% of my procrastination has been work getting in the way lol

About the only big thing I need help with is the Auto Stick wiring. I know the black wire is a ground, easy enough, but I have no idea were the other wires are going!! If anyone could direct me to a pictures area that shows what wire goes where, I am certain I can get it figured out in no time!!


I have mods planned for the 3.5 but I want to make sure I get it running 100% first, then comes the fun time!!

So a quick update, I have been pricing out a few other needed maintenance / mods. Slowly getting prepared for the road trip this fall.

Still need to pick up new radiator hoses and a thermostat next week so that hopefully next weekend I will have many more new pictures for everyone, and next month I should be picking up parts car number 3!!

Sounds good. I'm glad to see another 2.7 car saved by a 3.5 swap - hopefully your 3.5 won't share the same fate, lol.

Thank you!! I am hoping that I have her running by month end, but I am also in the process of moving from an apartment back out to the farm (long story) so I may be held up a little. I do have more pics to come, just have to clean up my photobucket account first so I am more organized.
