So say it fits. Does that mean a conversion to rear wheel drive is in order. I don't think the car would go anywhere fast because the wheels would be burning out when you stomp on it. I remember that the 1st Gens where designed by Chrysler to be easily converted to rear wheel drive. I don't know if they did that for the 2nd Gens.
The other thing I wonder about is the firewall, can the trans fit into it without having to cut it and fab a new hump. That would be a major task. I keep looking for a picture of the concept Chargers rear suspension to see how they did the RWD, since it's built on the LH platform. I think there was a cutaway picture in one of the mags but I haven't found it.
You would still need to fabricate an air induction system to go on top of that, but if the issue is hood clearance a custom hood as mentioned earlier or a scoop of some kind should eliminate claerance issues.

Don't know what the 5.7L Hemi is going for ... the 505HP stroked 440 runs $10K list (~$9K street) with no induction or exhaust (you provide the intake, carb, & headers).
I don't want to talk about the crate "426" Hemi ...
