Nope.
The point of getting the 2.4 is to put the internals from the 2.0 in it, to in theory, make a 2.1 de-stroked motor. With that set-up, you can put down some serious power with the right bolt ons and a good tune.
My plan, if I got it, was to bore out the head, upgrade the internals, and have an amazing motor with the stock supercharged set-up. Which I would probably be pushing around 250-260 to the wheel, without needing to get tuned.

Dude that's gonna be sick! If you can push 270hp out of your redline your gonna feel that pretty good. Buddy of mine has a stock srt 4 and that is pushing 230 hp stock. That little car hauls, i could only imagine 270

Like stated above, if I can do all those, I want to upgrade the supercharger to a Harrop TVS 1350, and with that I should be hitting around the 300 mark, if not more. But that's all way down the line.
Those srt's are nice! The Redline does 205 stock.

So, spent way more money then I should of this week on black Friday deals.
But I have a rear sway bar coming, a phenolic spacer, and a mid-length header/down pipe coming my way.
At least another hour of deals. Lets see what else I can blow my money on.

FE5 shocks and struts on the way as well, and those will get wrapped in some SSC springs.

Rear sway bar installed today. And I must say, It makes a world of difference!

And because I owe some pictures:

Not while the car is sitting. When I get it back on jack stands to do my rear shocks and springs I will snap a picture for you.

Derf, haven't forgotten about you. So far the one day off I planned to start my suspension, I got called into work.

Next month SHOULD be a good month for my car. I SHOULD be getting tuned and dyno'd.

And I will have another surprise, soon
