Making progress on the 95 Dakota swap. Motor is in, wired up the quick run harness into the main harness and mounted both the relay box and computer all supplied by DIY hemi. Much thanks to Blake and Mike and the crew for all the R&D they have put into these components to make thing super simple to swap. Ive built my own harnesses in the past and i can assure you that it is not the easiest task to take on

The pictures are great. Have you tried to see if the brake booster will fit yet?
On other web sights a lot of chatter as to getting the rear plugs out on that side.
My Hemi is not in yet, but my brake booster went out and rather then install a new
vacuum booster in I installed a GMC hydro-boost unit that runs off the power
steering pump. Very compact and out of the way where the engine will go.. The brakes
take a little getting use to, more sensitive then vacuum brakes. Fluid flows from
pump to booster then to steering gear. Takes longer to bleed but worth it.
Also added a cooler for the power steering.
Good Luck, Daddyododge1
P.S. The Dodge hydro-boost won't work because the rod from the booster to the pedal
is way to long. The G.M. was much shorter rod but still had to shorten the spacer behind
the vacuum booster to make it work. Good Luck.
