This is the place to ask questions about your engine components like cams, valves, pistons? just anything that is generally "engine" specific.

anything is possible with enough money.....but probably wouldn't go in "easily" You'd be better off with a 2.4 4-cyl than a 2.5 v6 anyways

I'm pretty sure the 2.5 and the 3.0 are very similar and a couple people have put the 3.0 in a 1GN.

So yes it's possible.

You lose.

3.0L in a neon

It will bolt to the 3speed auto but not the 5speed as the bell housing bolt pattern is different.

:shock: I had a 92 Plymouth Acclaim with that engine ..... I can imagine what it would do in the much lighter Neon body

thats actually pretty easy with a custom manifold that mounts the turbo in the crossover pipe. it would place the turbo right over the trans though :-/
