Hello,

Is the 2.4l engine a turbo engine? You can call me if you like, just let me know and i will send my cell # via private message here.

What happened to your 2.3l engine?

they say the 2.4 is not turbo. so thats why i was wondering cuz i was curious if it would mess with the computer. but my 2.3 thats in my car now... well i was drivin down the road and my oil light came on so i pulled over and it was bone dry. long story short, blew my head gasket and probably messed up something in the top end. i have to tear into it tonight.

What city are you near in Idaho?

Hey, about everything is different on a turbo car. Engine Control Modules are different, sensor, and the list goes on.

Plus a non turbo engine has a higher compression ratio than a turbo model.

It would be hard to do, and the cost will be $$$$

How much do they want for the Engine?

Have you looked around for a another 850?
