2.0 sohc transformation help!

Post by 08kgraves » Wed Aug 24, 2011 1:46 pm

ok so i have the stock 2.0 sohc engine which broke a timing belt and bent valves in the head. i was wondering exactly what i can turn it into. can i make it into a 2.4 dohc somehow? or just into a 2.0 dohc? what are my options exactly? i figure even if i have to change the crank and bore it will be cheaper in the long run then buying another engine. i figure since i already have it i will build it instead of going out and buying another motor.

the 2.2 stroker crank rods and pistons were over $1,500 you cant get the 2.0 to 2.4 so you have to swap it. there are tons of threads discussing swapping to dohc and to a 2.4 all you have to do is use the search button. i personally like my sohc. cheap easy i built it and forgot about it except when i change the oil.
