Reader Question: I am currently replacing a connecting rod in my 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS. It is a 2.0L DOHC engine.
I am wondering if it is possible to replace the engine with a newer model (2003 or so) 2.4L engine without much customizing of the car.
Thanks for your help!
I would call your local junk yard and ask them if they have a Hollander Guide Book that will tell them which parts are interchangeable
If they know you are interested in buying an engine from them, they will do a little look up legwork for you free over the phone.
I would bet that all good junk yards have that service available to them and can tell you for sure.
