New phone = better interior shots. Still a work in progress but more than 50% there I'd say. http://i1253.photobucket.com/albums/hh588/chewasterisk/IMG_20121030_160609.jpg http://i1253.photobucket.com/albums/hh588/chewasterisk/IMG_20121030_155956.jpg http://i1253.photobucket.com/albums/hh588/chewast...

Preety decent considering what it has. I bet you'd make more if you parted it though. Why not hold onto it and just be patient save money and hop on a deal when it falls in your lap. It can/will happen eventually.....with patience. If I told you what I paid for my swap car you wouldn't believe me.

You look into just using like 02 PT MTX PCM and harness? you could use the pt harness and ecu but the pt cruiser uses a 4 wire iac and that would require using a first gen intake manifold. and you would have to run egr or get and engine light witch i dont like.

Out of curiousity how is reliability on these? I always see PT/Stratus engines fetching way more than single cam neon engines. I always see PT's/Stratus's in JY with bad engines as well which explains the high priced used engines as well. *edit* Side note. PT Engine & Performance Base engine size: 2...

So worked on donor car a little more today. Pulled rims off and installed 4 donut spares. Pulled bumper and tossed it. Inspected IC as I knew it wasn't stock. Seems they played the who needs a crash bar game....which is odd because it sure looks like it would have fit fine...... http://i1253.photobu...

No before because I didn't wreck it......but it was ugly anyway.

The rear end is pushed more than 6" to the left....

You can actually see all 4 tires if you look under car dead center from rear.
