I'm trying to find out if a 98 5.2 would fit easily and properly in a 94's 5.2 compartment. Does anyone have knowledge of this?

I have not done it, nor do I know anybody that has, However the 5.2 V8 was a factory option from 1991, and I believe was included in the Shelby package before that. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't just bolt in using factory replacement motor mounts, or possibly modifying your V6 mounts.

Correct,the 89. Shelby was the 1st Dakota V8 option. The 3.9 is a 5.2 minus two cylinders. The motor mounts and engine control modules may be the only difference. The 94 engine department has enough cLearance for the V8. The ‘88 and ‘89’s have 1 inch less clearance between the radiator and firewall.
