The motor came out of the Dodge Stratus R/T 4-cyl that's been out for 10 years in the Mexican Market. If the Mini Cooper S was out before then (I don't know shiet about them) then maybe.Originally posted by Rice Boi
I don't know if this is true, but the props should not go to Dodge for the SRT-4 powerplant. I've been told from several sorces that the motor was the orginal prototype Mini cooper S motor. But they decided to cut it just before production and went with the 1.6 it now has. Just wanted to throw this out there. So all the props for reaserch and development should go to BMW (Mini devision)
Please don't flame if i'm incorrect, this is just what I have been told from some people I know who works behind the scens of BMW.
Besides, a 2.4L in a small car like that would be worse than an H22a in a CRX. Lol. Talk about handling!
