Are there any problems associated with engine and transmission swaps looking at a 96 ram 1500 5.2 liter with automatic transmission to put in a 97 Ram 1500 that has a 5.9 with auto transmission?

The transmissions on thos 2 applications are the same more than likely. What may be different is the computers. The computer for the 5.2 is set up differant than the 5.9. it may be best to get the computer and have it reprogramed when you do the swap.
