good evening my name is ***** ***** I will assist yes, you can but it will lack power. the 350 does not have the torque or horsepower the 8.2 has. as long as you are ok with that, it will work. you will have to change the entire power train, engine and trans. wire harness, exhaust and all accessories as well.
