2L DOHC Swap into 2000

Post by dan___92 » Thu Oct 28, 2010 8:09 am

The motor in my 2000 atx neon is pretty much done and I have a 2L dohc motor and 5 speed tranny out of a 98. Can someone tell me what else I will need to bolt it up and make it run? I know I'll need the shifter and pedal assembly. Can I use my stock rad, harness etc...? Sorry if there is already a thread about this, I could not find it.

You are pretty much set. The pedal assy will need to be from a 2000 tho. You will need the DOHC motor mounts from an SRT, PT, or Stratus IIRC. If you can't find them used, the dealer should be able to help you out. Export PT'a had the 2.0 well into the NGC years, so a 2.0 DOHC mount should be available. But IDK if there is really any difference between them.

Any of the 2.4 swap threads in this section will be basically the same info you need.

You can bolt it in but you might not be able to keep your power steering. But swap your side bracket and extend the cts wiring like 20" to reach the cts and do the de 90 mod on your intake mani and buy a pt exhaust mani if you want stock looks. Hopefully I helped.

it will bolt in, the main differences between the DOHC and the SOHC is the cylinder head, both have the same block and all the stock motor mounts from the 2000 work, you will need to hack up the front timing cover if you still want to run one, you will have to use a starter from a 1gn neon and a few other things. Hell both motors that I have had in my car have been transplant from 1gn neons. My car is Dohc 2.0 running on MS
