I just got a 1972 Cuda, and I plan on doing a 6.1 or 6.2 hemi swap. I currently run a 383 with a Keisler 5 speed. Once question I have, Can I run this Keisler with the new Hemi??

YES you can if you use  a small block bell housing and the correct flywheel.

Boy, it has been a while since I've been on here! I swapped a 5.7 Hemi into my 70 Cuda a couple of years ago. I put a 6.1 SRT cam in it before the install. I used the TTI headers and motor mount plates, an MSD Hemi-6 controller for the coils and a Mopar Performance intake with an Edelbrock 750 carb and a Carter electric fuel pump. I'm running a smallblock TF 727 behind it with a TCI 3500 stall converter. I didn't use the adapter plate (didn't even know about it when I did the swap) and I see no need for it. The way I did it was pretty inexpensive and in my opinion it's a great swap! The engine makes great power and is a lot lighter than a B/RB engine and the car handles great. There's plenty of room in the engine bay to work on things, and with the MSD Hemi-6 contrller it is a really clean install.

That looks great!  almost like it's stock.  :thumbsup:

Mopar just came out with a beautiful dual quad mid riser dual plane for the 5.7 / 6.1. I had a chance to ogle one at the Mancini Racing booth at Carlisle, very nice piece.

We were there with Mancini as well we share space with them and help them with all the rest-mods and modern mopar. The intake mentioned is a cool product but you would still get better performance keeping the EFI

Well i am going to add the atomic efi from msd and that will be my fuel injection  i have talk to some people who have used this and they love it.If you use their billet dist with lockout then the atomic efi will control the spark and the fuel.No brainer there for people who dont like to tune thier cars or cant.Do it once and forget it the computer takes care of it.

I have also swap going on, juts get in the car and started. I am using 5.7 with Fast XFI unit. As a tranny I have Toyota R154 with a Dodge Dakota bell. Just need to get my prob shaft from machine shop and snow away from streets to have a test drive...
Quite much work and small things to get sorted in this swap, but with a good planning and purchasing right parts not so bad after all.


I get the car on street at beginning of the summer, and been driven happily about 3000 miles. Only problem was ripped engine mount rubber, so it needed a torque strap  :burnout:  Fuel consuption varies 17-23 miles per gallon.

 Very nice - do all the cars have the same paint and perhaps wheels. Hard to tell the color from the pic.

Auto, I recognize your Charger from "Big Muscle".  Very nice!  The modern hemi swap has a lot going for it.  Video also features a Buick but spnds more time with Auto's Charger, well worth viewing IMHO...

You realize you are now my hero! Is your 6.1 mostly stock?


Just a good tune and a CAI

check this one out it gets good at 1.30 and it gets insane at the 4.00 mark.
