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.
Chrysler smallblock engine ID *by the numbers*
Chrysler smallblock engines are both plentiful and similar in appearance
among the 4 different displacements.
Here's a primer on ID'ing them with the numbers that exist on the block.
This will help you be sure of what you may already have, or prevent a
dishonest seller from ripping you off unless you, the educated buyer, knows
Note that this info may not apply to early A engines, Magnum series or big

how long can that 50k mile 2.5L 4 cyl go bouncing off the rev limiter and
being fed oxygen from my cutting torch at 100 PSI
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!
My Turbo K-car
This is my turbo Dodge Aries. It came
with a 2.5L SOHC naturally aspirated engine. It now has a 2.2L Chrysler turbo engine. This video is shortly after
we got it running with the new motor and trans, it still needs to be tuned
and some bugs worked out, but it is driveable.
Dodge 2.2L cylinder head removal and post-mortem
The Dodge 600 convertible I picked up a few years ago as a very cheap
Craigslist find never ran right.
I finally got around to pulling the head for an inspection and boy did this
thing have problems.
This video also marks the world premiere of Weedeater Man for 2011. You'll
even get a brief glimpse of him at the controls of his trusty weed trimmer.

Diagnosing the Engine Knock
Trying to figure out what the engine noise is. Looks like lifters that
won't drain down plus maybe some plugged up oil squirters.
1989 turbocharged chrysler lebaron 2.2 back to life--GOTSPL--
its the phantom. Been down for 11 months and its back ---Runs 14-15psi fwd
i snapped in the middle of racing the front bracebar that attaches to the
trans mount with the engine torge.it was originally welded so we drilled
6-3/4" bolts through the frame and it holds. then shortly afterwards the
steering collum snapped in half while racing so it took us 11 months to
figure out how to replace it with another model lebaron which doesnt come
with blinkers or the right harness on the collum.When we cut off the other
harness it effected the brake lights so were trying to fix it.
