Hello Im new to this forum and I have a 01 neon. I would like to do a motor swap. Iv found info the 1st gens but not alot for the 2nd gen. I would like to know what all I will need to do the swap. Iv seen people talking about a web site that has step by step on the swap but cant seem to find it. Any help will be awasome. Thanks

Here is somre info..

You must use the SRT-4 axles.

Parts list for swap into a 2nd gen 5-speed:
-Complete SRT-4 engine/tranny (A/C compressor and PS pump and lines if you plan for those options)
-Complete SRT engine bay harness
-Lower engine torque strut and through-bolt (your original one will not work, bolt hole size on the SRT engine is larger) Upper strut works fine.
-Tranny mount and bracket
-FMIC + hot and cold pipes
-SRT clutch and brake pedal assembly
-SRT clutch master cylinder
-SRT shifter cables
-Fuel pump - I swapped the whole fuel tank.
-SRT O2 sensor
-Boost gauge
-SRT radiator and fans.. not sure if the radiator is needed, but we swapped it over as a complete unit instead of just swapping the fans.
-Dash harness isn't needed but takes care of the boost gauge wiring and pressure line. Only get it if it is cheap or free with the deal.
-Gauge cluster is nice, but not needed.

I think that's everything. With this parts list you won't have to splice anything except the fog light wires (connector is different and wires aren't long enough), and a few very minor things inside if you swap out the dash harness. Also, getting a whole wrecked SRT-4 is so much easier than piecing the swap together.

If I remember correctly from the swap into my 2gen R/T last month, everything is bolt-up except the intercooler and coolant bottle, which was a piece of cake with a hammer, sawzall, drill, and some large screws and washers.

Hope this helps :)
