I want to be sure I understand your build .... this is the 2.0 DOHC block, crankshaft, and head, with SRT-4 rods, pistons, rings etc.
So you'll end up with a 2.0 SRT-4 engine in the lighter 1GN R/T body?

If that's correct, I'll try it when my R/T engine wears out.

yeah what he said, its a 2.4 stratus block with the rotating parts from a srt and my 2.0 head cause of all the work i have done to it. but when im done with this swap, im going to try to build my 2.0 and see if the srt pistons will fit, i know my stratus pistons did fit in the bores though. so who knows.

well been on this one seriously for days now, got the head built, cams installed, and timing cover (new srt with new srt timing components) all put together. just got my MM adapter and my p/s bracket from modern. now all i'm waiting on is my alt brakets from the dealership to come. pics up later this weekend.

so i failed with new pics, and it started to rain and was dark today, but motor has been finished, and the old motor and trans is FINALLY out. car is missing the front bumper, headlights, hood, and fenders. looks rediculous right now. but if it stops raining by tomorrow, then i'll have the new motor at least attatched to the trans and installed in the car. more to come.
