RE: should i do this to my leon?
the turbo option is open and i am thinking i might take it eventually.
he has 135k on him, so the original engine is still running well, but will need to be replaced in about 50k(5 years, maybe)
the stock DOHC head will bolt right to the 2.4 and the transmission is the same. it should be mentioned that SRT/4 cars use these same parts, they just have a turbo and 2.4 block.
mother and i looked at a 2.4 stratus sxt today, her intrepid is getting old(175k) and she needs a replacement. ill run the hell out of that one and see if i like the engine. ive hears theyre nasty compared to the 2.0, very vibraty and all, i dont know, though.
ive seen full turbo engines from pt cruisers with all accessories for around 1200 at boneyards. 220hp in a 2400 pound car.
