i am gonna guess no. i have no clue, because i have never so much as owned a chrysler, but no. it will not work. is it possible, yes. anything is possible. but before you try swapping in a 727, you may want to try jumping to the moon. i think you'll have better luck with that.

the stock tranny is a major p.o.s. just have the stock one rebuilt and take it somewhere that does good work. there is a valve or something that if you take it out or drill it out not sure which has to be done but it will be able to pump oil in park, which it doesn't do stock, you get it so it pumps the oil in park and it will last much longer. good luck on your search.

$450 is a great price.........

If you are still interested, I did some research, and the 727 can be mated to the 5.2. PM me if interested.

well than I'll probably just get it rebuilt. Becuase if I use a different transmission the computers may not work and if the computers dont talk than the truck wont work.lol.

and if its longer,shorter you will have to modify a ton of driveline stuff....probably not worth it.

The trans in those trucks has a good rep if its rebuilt properly, do some research on the 'net and you will see tons of upgrades for them.

OK, how much does it usually cost to rebuild one of these trans? what do they do to them? Is a 46RE with a lock up Tourqe Converter a good trans? 4 speed automatic?

Wayne at APS does some good work. But, he's a pretty good salesman too. I had my 46re built at Joel's on Joy over in Detroit. He does amazing work. He literally removed and fine tuned my valve body 6-8 times and dyno tuned it each time to get it perfect. He used 47re internals (diesel tranny) for strength. It set me back $2300, but that was an insane HP rebuild meant to last under my right foot and a ton of HP when I eventually get my 5.9 built right. A stock rebuild would be much less. He is extremely respected in the drag racing community and is known for his 727 work. The 46re is basically an electronic version of the 727 with overdrive.

I think you'd have to modify the cross member. Change drive shaft length. You'd lose overdrive. You'd probably interfere with or lose any electronic speed sensing for your engine controls, but it should bolt on.

I have a 727 behind my 318 magnum. you have to cut a hole in the bellhousing for the crank sensor to go through and it's about 8 inches shorter than the 46re you have now. Im not sure what it would do to your computer it hasnt affected mine at all but its older. I would think a ecm out of a manual trans would probly solve it.

Probly cheaper and easier to get yours rebuilt. I would think about a towing style shift kit and the manual valve when you do it.
