Wow, thanks for the nugget Rainyraven. When I first sat in the red SX I test drove, I said, "Holy crap this feels like a Dodge". I knew they were engineered in California, and I assumed their engineers would consist of the laid off Chrysler folks in exodus from Michigan. I'm glad to finally have confirmation of my theory. (Dodgeboys do have more fun!)

You welcome but it seems Reading more there might be a bit of a fight on who started this motor Not to steal anybodys thread.
On wikipedia they seem to say dodge is not the first.. Idk seems last month I read it was Dodge and mitshu who built this motor then sold there rights to it to Hyundai/kia

Anyway I do know dodge has a turbo verison theta 2.4 they run thats 285 h/p
for a srt4 which gets me thinking of some new ideas lol
Anyway sorry to steal your thread and I return it too you
Again glad to have you on board and enjoy your KOUP:D
