What is the difference between 2010 and a 2011 dodge 4.7l engine
So a couple years ago I bought a clean low mile 2011 Dodge Dakota with the 3.7l V6. I'm sorry now I didn't hold out for one with the 4.7l V8. I'd like to put a 4.7l in the truck, but I am in California. The engine change rules state the engine has to be from a vehicle the same year or newer. Interchange books list this engine same-same for 2008 - 2013. I called BAR about this and I got the response "Same year or newer, no exceptions". I've found a low mile 2010 engine and trans. If I used that motor, what would distinguish it from a 2011 dodge 4.7l engine? Is the 2010 PCM going to rat me out? If I use a 2011 PCM?
