dakota question

hey everyone

I have a 2002 dakota v6 that I want to eventually convert to a v8. I thought that I had read somewhere that the 4.7 and the 3.9 both used the same 5 speed transmission - does anyone know for sure if that is the case?

I would like to keep the 5 speed - (nv3500?) if I can and just make the motor change (with whatever other components would be needed)

does this sound possible and correct?

thanks very much
