Engine swap

Anyone ever swap out a 3.6 for a 5.7? Is it possible? Is it worth it?

You can swap out anything, but it all comes down to cost. If you add labor to the parts, it would be cheaper buying a used 5.7 Challenger R/T or 6.4 Scat Pack.

Another thing to consider is that the 3.6 cars have a smaller, weaker rear differential than the 5.7 and 6.4 cars. So you may want to factor upgrading that into your costs, too.
