Conversion

Converting an engine designed for FRONT wheel drive to REAR wheel drive will be interesting for sure. It looks like all the turbo stuff will be right up against the firewall with little if any room for the hoses.
The radiator hoses will be much longer.
You might want to consider if the transmission can handle the torque.
Will a new computer be required?
Good luck and take lots of pictures.
Thanks.

longer/ rerouted pipes/hoses.

i would imagine that the existing motor mounts will work just fine with the engine.

i wouldn't imagine that installing the motor would be all that bad, really. need an adaptor for the tranny, some custom stuff here and there. but a lot of the electronics should be compatable with the existing stuff. it has got to be no harder than converting a 2.4L to a 4.0L

im looking forward to seeing how this turns out. not that it helps me because i have the 2.5L, but its cool to see this tried.

Well seeing what that engine was pulled from ,the tranny may just bolt right up.The 2.4 standard engine for the jeep IS the same engine that is used in the PT. : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_Neon_engine#2.4
