Default Can you fit this engine in my car?

I have been pondering on it for a while and come to a conclusion that I want to put a 454 small block in my 2011 Dodge Challenger. It's going to be costly..but I need to do some research first. What do you guys think? Will it fit and where would be a good place to start looking at to see how much it will cost....if it's even possible. Thanks

With enough time and money, anything is possible

Just out of curiosity though, why are you putting a chevy motor in a dodge car? Nothing against it, but just curious why you chose the 454 over something like a 440

Edit: Looks like it is going to be pretty pricey. Here's a couple examples of 454 crate engines with a range of performance and power to them. Seems to be that 4500-6000 is the average going price for a new one. Rebuilding an old motor might be cheaper, but takes longer to do.

I've heard so much good things about a 454. I don't know much about muscle power. But the more suggestions, the better. I'll check that motor out.

The 454 is an awesome motor. If you're open to other options, you could also check out the 350 and 383 from chevy, or the 408, 426, 493 or 572 dodge/chrysler motors. They tend to be a bit more for a new crate motor though, looks like 8-20 grand each.

Back to the 440 though, here's a prime example of a damn nice one.

Also, what motor do you currently have in your car?

Definitely lol. The v6 is nice for daily driving in those cars, but it does lack the brutality of the old school big block engines

That might take a bit more work to cram a v8 in there though, especially a big block like the 454 or 440. Lots of mod work to do, but if you're patient and your budget is right, the end results would be mind blowing. Going from a 300hp v6 to a 500++ hp v8 is a night and day difference in feel.

Overall, it's a big project. Like New motor, transmission, suspension, brakes and a ton of other stuff to handle the increase in weight and power. When you do it, please make a build log on here haha

Probably won't start til a year from now. Just like to do a lot of research before making a drastic money situation lol. I planned on changing all those stuff that you just listed. The transmission feels like it's about to go out in a few years anyways.

Good idea to plan it out really well ahead of time. The best thing I can suggest is that if you aren't doing the work yourself, to find a very reputable mechanic that has done projects similar to this in the past.

It's the same as checking a resume man, I wouldn't want some kid straight outta tech school who's never worked on anything other than hondas trying to do it. It's just wayy to much horsepower and torque to play around with. And can make for a downright dangerous ride if done wrong.

I got a few hot rod shops down the road. I also know a mechanic that's done hot rods for 30+ years
