4cyl dakota trans. People swap srt4 motors in all the time in rwd stuffmalicad said:Not a V6, but in the "dare to be different" category, I would absolutely LOVE to put my 04 Dodge SRT-4 engine in a Malibu. 2.4L (148 cid) intercooled turbo (16psi stock). Totally stock, minus a short throw shifter, I ran a 13.86 @ 102. 3100 pounds with me in it. Problem would be obviously making it a rwd configuration, and finding a trans that would A, work, and B, hold the power. I think that would be so awesome! I love my Dodge! I cracked into the 12's once, using drag radials, but I broke an axle at the track dumping the clutch at 3000 rpm. Never do that again!!
