I've tried doing searches, and haven't came up with anything. After looking at it, I think It may be doable, but deffinitely tight, I think you may run out of room with the intake manifold. The reason I ask is its pretty easy to find the lower horsepower ones, which is 150hp for the 2.4's But a 2.3 HO or a rare W41 at 195hp Would be a N/A rocket ship. So I was curious if anyone has done it.

for reference-

If you are going to do that much work just swap in a 2.4 230 hp SRT4 Neon drivetrain from the 04-05s. The 03 has an open differential and 215 hp.

Mopar stage 2 260-270 hp Mopar stage 2 with toys (with race fuel, on high octane mode) 275-280 hp.

Mopar stage 3 turbo kits, there is a Mopar stage 3 kit without toys, and Mopar stage 3 kit WITH toys. The base kit makes 315-330 hp at the wheels, and the kit with toys, with race gas and high octane mode can make 360-375 hp at the wheels.

AGP stage 4 turbo kit, Garrett T3/T4 57 trim 400 hp
Same, but with Mitsu 20G 500 hp

I'd also suggest the Dodge Caliber 2.4 rated at 285 hp, but with a bit of mods they tend to blow out the bottom ends....different motor than the SRT4 and PT Cruiser GT Turbo....way weaker!

My SRT4 has the stage 2 but no toys, street tires and 93 oct gas. A bigger turbo is on it but since I don't have a fuel controler I can safely run only 14 psi of boost...about 300 hp. In the next few weeks I have some DSS stage 3 (550 hp rated) axles coming, since I am breaking my stock ones after every 8 passes now...and fuel controller to raise the boost (still 93 oct) to 24! If I only gain 50 hp the car should run 12.0s, a 75 hp increase should see 11.6-11.7, and a 100 hp gain (what my tuner says uit will get) should see 11.5s!!!

If we put my current drivetrain into my MUCH lighter 84 Horizon IT should run 11.5s with none of the upcoming mods!! :mrgreen:

36 time NHRA/IHRA Champion
05 SRT4 / 12.79 @ 111 mph / 40.1 mpg!
01 Voyager V6 / no mods yet / 24 mpg
84 Horizon / 1760 lbs / was 17.9, now 23.0 mpg
96 Geo Metro / 1590 lbs / was 46.2, now 60 mpg!
95 Neon / unk mpg so far
