Which transmission will bolt up?
« on: July 28, 2008, 02:00:03 PM »

What transmissions will bolt up to a 5.7 Hemi?
 
With these new after market computers, I've been thinking about maybe putting a 5.7 into Polaraco.  If it will bolt to my 518, then it will be pretty easy to do.
 
The only thing is, I want the MDS system as well.  That would give me MPG and all the awsome power I could ask for.  I'm still convinced my HP vs. weight is still a bit light.

There have been some articles on this adaptation in some recent magazines.  However, I could not tell you the answer, sorry. 
 
A recent edition of "Engine Masters" had some articles on using the new Hemi.  See if you can find a copy.

The 5. 7L HEMI  Tr ansmission Options
Automatic: The DaimlerChrysler engineers were nice
enough to leave most of the small block bolt pattern in tact.
What that means for you is that any 727 or 904 type
transmission will bolt up to the new HEMI. See below for
suggested Mopar Performance parts to assist with the
install.

Thanks a lot Stan...now either the Polaraco will never be finished or the Virgin 15,000 mile 72 Polara will be ravaged with a 5.7 Hemi transplant.....

It's all on your shoulders......

Not that I'm a Moparts.com fan, but there is some good info there if you can get through all the narcissism and ego.  I have seen a few conversion threads there. 
 
Here's one:

Rich Eherenberg confirmed it is available in the aftermarket ECM.s 
 
As far as ravaging the Virgin. . . .  It is definitely a likely candidate for the job. . . Here again, it would be the one of a kind car in the world.  Rich said "Ahhh It's  C body!".  But I told him a 5.7 would give the Savoy a run for it's money then.
 
Overall, it's a good idea.  Find another 518 trans, make the safety mods to the steering and brakes and have a rust free sleeper.  I wonder if I could send my interior up town and get it done faster?

No No!  I'm all for modifying cars, but cars that are high-milage or are otherwise POS rolling hulks.  Don't do that to a 17,000 mile car! 
 
Years ago Hot Rod took a pristine '57 Imperial, with 32,000 miles, and cut the top off and modified the car.  I'm still not over it!  There are plenty of candidates for this work, not a pristine car.
 
Steve, please, no!

I have to admit I'm in favor of a clean 5.7 conversion into a 4-dr C-body.  It will make jealous / piss off the A-B-E guys, and I think that is a worthwhile thing to do.
 
Of course I can imagine the prospect for Polaraco to do this, because I personally lack the time, talent, inclination, enthusiasm, skill , determination, perseverence, etc, to do such a project.
