The price of the engine may be cheaper, but not after you factor in the new transmission, wiring harness, drive shafts, PCM, accessories, engine mounts, etc.

IIRC, the 2.4 is a 420A, same as the dodge neon and eclipse. You may do some research to see if those are cheaper and what parts are interchangeable.
