SO I am a newbie to this site. I bought my 97 dodge dakota regular cab less than a year ago and I am currently in the process of giving it a face-lift. I have the 318 and a five speed to boot, the truck has a 3.92(i think--i am new to mopar). I used to always drive GM but don't like what they are doing there anymore and needed something to pull my pop up. My last ride was a bagged S-10 although I am not going that way with this truck. No lowering at all will be done here. My truck had no clear coat when I got it and I am currently getting it ready to re-shoot this summer while I am out of college amongst other things. I have grown to really like this truck except for the mileage. So I have a couple of questions that I'm sure you guys will be like you need to move that to another forum but I'll see what bites I get here first. First question- I am upgrading many parts of my 318 to give me better midrange power, with the way my truck is geared and the tranny combo I get poor interstate mileage as well as crappy power in 5th gear(mainly in tow). I have put headers, exhaust, and a cold air intake kit and have a 50mm TB, Firepower ignition kit, and an electric flex-a-lite fan on the way. My question is this: I have bought ford 19 lb. 4 hole pintle injectors to upgrade my current ones. Will my stock fuel pump be able to keep up with those injectors or will it need to be changed. Question 2: Has anyone successfully tried to swap out a 5-speed in a 2nd gen dakota for a 6-speed out of a gen 3? I have some cash but am not rich and just wonder if this is realistic? I need another gear on the interstate to keep my revs down to add mileage and was thinking since they are still magnum v-8's in those dakota's how hard(if at all) it would be to swap them out. A rear end gear change wouldn't help because of what I use it for, plus I do like to drive it fast when not in tow just because it's fun. My truck will go 0-60 quick but 60-100 is laughable with all very tall 5th gear. I've got my r/t wheels, paint, SS inserts, r/t badges, and everything else I need to finish this truck out this summer and just would like to know if any of you guys have any insight on these things. Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance!
