Yes the sprockets you flip around, so that the 2.0 front is facing out so you can read them, the 2.4 timing marks stamped on the back are different that the 2.0

so you have a sohc neon and put a dohc 2.4 head on it? If I am correct, which it looks like did it finally work properly with your lines and everything that you were having clearance issues with?

Thanks.

you have to use the cam magnet that was on your car prior to the head swap and yes the 97 sensor will work

Would it be better to use a 1gn R/T computer for this setup or a 2gn R/t computer if you want to do this and keep it NA?

Stock ecu is good enough I ran my stock ecu, injectors, fuel pump, and fpr when I did my dohc head swap on my 00 Plymouth.I'm running my stock ecu on my 2.4 dohc swapped 04 neon right now with out any issues so our stock ECUs are OK to use for this swap

Cool. This got me thinking about trying to scavenge the parts to do it but get 10.5 compression pistons to compensate for the loss of compression switching heads.

Good to know that your other swap is still running good, I have not even messed with my swap car since I couldn't get the timing issue figured out... and that was like summer of 2009, I really need to get back on the ball, lol

Yes holmes, it is I!, just coming to the motor swap board to lend a hand on the topic I know well about, and to also do my yearly post before I go back to lurking!
