Or you could go lower miles and have a eagle you would need more to make it work like pcm and other stuff I think but that's all part of the game right

Why don't you just trade up to an R/T? You'll get better suspension more features etc? With the prices of used R/T's its a no brainer vs all the time and work you'd have to put in to swapping out the motors. JMO

Lots of work and money!!!! If you are a member of the Z, go on there and search for swapping a v6 for a hemi. Its not as simple as dropping the motor, trans and pcm in.

With the MDS the gas mileage isn't that big a difference from the 6 to the Hemi.
