can buy a engine that comes from the Chrysler PT Cruiser 2.4 turbo, what else do I need for the swap?

check the big .org for more info but it depends on what you want to do....usually involves a full wiring harness, etc

2.4 out of a pt cruiser or a stratus


if you are running a motor newer than 03 it will require either a full harness including dash swap or megasquirt.

b/c the turbo motors are 03 you would need MS or like i said full swap harness, cluster, keys and such to make it work

If you go with a motor older than 02 then you can use just a dohc computer and harness and change out the pins for the coil. The transmissions from our cars will just bolt up to the block.

For a swap you will also need a 2.4 motor mount adapter, and depending on a motor will need the pt alternator brackets.

For fuel you will need to have 24lb injectors which can be found in mustang gt i beleive(blue top injectors)
-you will also need to have a 58psi fuel regulator since the 1gns to 01 are only 42psi(???)

the passenger side mount may hve to be flipped for the motor to fit. I think the dohc intake manifold will fit but on the 03 and new headers will have to be redrilled

I can not just rebuild the motor with controller and transmisson? so I take everything from the pt cruiser?
