    Been lookin around and seems like quite a few parts from other cars fit on our cars.. From the Neon Tranny on the 420a motor and the Dodge Avenger..

    So, what parts have you found out fit on our DSMS? :)

    I posted this in another thread:
    I know, that's mostly the interchangeability between the DSM models, but look at the last sentence.

    In addition to that, some 1995-1999 Avenger/Sebrings, and most Neon engine blocks are the same as the 2GNT blocks.

    The Neon ECUs can also be used in our cars.

    lets not forget the 2.4l swap from the cloud cars. It requires some modification to work (LOL) , but our head works on it and our tranny bolts up to.

    I'm pretty sure the Neon ECU's cannot be used in our cars.

    They can, it's just that the pinouts are a little different, so you would need to do some rewiring (assuming this is from a DOHC, obviously).

    What would even be the advantage of using a neon ecu?

    By the way, the Jeep TB isn't an exact swap.

    There is a lil more to it than just taking it off a jeep and slapping it on the 420a intake manifold.

    becareful with the the Neon Block being called the same. That statement is not altogether wrong but not altogether correct.

    The Neon 2.0 DOHC bottom end is a direct fit for your 2gnt. Compression is the same; however the PCV system in the 95 was different. The PCV lines entered the block in the front with 2 large lines. These need to be capped off in our cars.

    The Neon 2.0 SOHC bottom end is different but will work. Compression is lower, pistons are different. Again the 95 block had the different style PCV system that needs to be capped off.

    All neaon heads are different and wont work without a lot of modification.

    If you change the brake lines you can use the calipers, brackets and rotors from a 3000gt SL

    The Jeep TB's are from the staight 6, 4.0l engines in the Cherokee class. I believe that they are from 91-99. Don't quote me on those exact years. I am just giving you info because I see no answers for you yet. Check out this link for install. It was, to me, the best out there:

    http://www.dimensia.com:81/jimbo/JeepTBfor2gnt.html

    Some of the years you don't have to take apart the TPS. The electrical hook-up is the same as the DSM.

    If you have any questions on my opinions on the mod (pro's and con's) I would be happy to answer in a PM so this thread won't get cluttered.
