    i have seen them more often than 3.3's actually. Around here anyway. Never really thought of it as being a good thing cus i didnt know it was even a decent engine. everyone i knew with a 2.4 N/A had rod failures sometime during ownership.

    I've only seen a couple if you don't count the ones I saw working at a Dodge dealership in the mid '90's. That's why I called it my Holy Grail. I knew they existed so I was holding out for one. Otherwise I'd have to get the accessories from one car and the trans from another. I really wanted this trans so the final drive ratio would be more suited for a van, coming from a van.

    This one has a bad rod bearing but I think it's because of an oil leak. The ones I've seen bad have broken the timing belt and then bad things happened.

    yea most likely due to to lack oil leak maintanance. I agree there. And yea i wish most had 3.3's around here haha, i had needed a trans for a 3.3 liter 97 voyager i had and couldnt find a trans worth a ---- cus all the vans were 2.4's OR a 3.3 that already needed a tranny haha.

    That's because 2.4L vans were never sold in Canada. I've seen one myself in the JY that had been imported into Canada

    Re: '04 SRT-4 engine in an '88 Caravan build

    I started my exhaust manifold today. Actually I started it awhile ago but I tried to make it too elaborate and I don't have the tools to do it efficiently so I decided on just using T's and elbows. I bought the flange online for about $88 after shipping. The elbows and T's I got local. The elbows I got cheap for about $3 apiece and the T's for around $15 a piece. I also have the Chrysler Garrett/Mits flange that I bought awhile ago. I'm gonna be using the T-3 Garrett that's on my van now.









    I plan on trimming the #4 cylinder/T for the little up-swing but not until later.


    I want to weld it together but I'm not sure if I should gas weld it or leave it to my welder and his Mig. I posted my question in the lounge because I think that sees more traffic. If you want to weigh in you can read it here: http://www.turbo-mopar.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=50781

    Eh, the guy got back to me and said 150 for the intake mani. I can probably get him to 100 but im sure thats about it lol. The one good thing is, if its out of the same engine the other parts in his picture shows, its perfectly clean lol.

    be sure to take a look inside those T's. they may look like the inside will flow smooth given the shape of the outside, but alot of times they arent smooth at all inside and need porting.

    I just scored an intake for $100!





    I don't know who was more excited, the guy who got my $100 or me for scoring an intake for $100.

    thats an SRT mani. DOHC manifold has a bend that goes up for no reason at all other than to make it harder to put a intake system on it..

    It also has pretty long runners, and not alot of plenum volume. In other words SRT mani is the way to go.
