How to identify these engines, sure there are easier ways, but here is the hard way.
Oh yeah, you can see the build date from going underneath the car, you don't need to take it out lol.
VIN decoding may not work for pre 1988 models.
Enter VIN in caps on the Dodge site, or else.
SuperCharged 5hp Briggs&Stratton
Here is a SuperCharged engine built from a 5hp (model13...) Briggs and
It uses a Modified turboCharger from a
Chrysler 2.2 , built by Garrett. I have to that my friend Clarence for
machining the Supercharger bearing
housing etc., as he does awesome work! He has helped out with some of my
other engines also :)) The blower spins at 6 times crankshaft speed.
We have not run this engine in this configuration, but did run it with the
carb. on the compressor inlet, it was a bit of a pain to start that way, so
my son decideto run a pressurized carb. Hopefully it runs OK. One thing is
for sure, it isn't going to be quiet!

10 minute Cam Swap

This is a video of me swapping out a slider cam in an '84 Dodge Rampage
with the 2.2L engine, for a roller cam from a '91 Spirit or Shadow or
Dodge 2.2, 2.5 8V Variable Camshaft Timing
Showing the basic idea of making a variable camshaft timing unit to use on
2.2 or 2.5 Chrysler engines. I removed the key from the camshaft and left
the bolt loose so I could move it back and forth to show the amount of
timing that could be had with the stock belt. Looks like at least 10
degrees or so.

My Turbo K-car
This is my turbo Dodge Aries. It came

is good, fuel pump and filter are good.
