I was wondering if anyone has done a swap from the Dodge Stratus SOHC 6G72 to the dodge stealth DOHC TT 6G72 motors. I would like to know if any parts are compatible... I want to either do a swap or twin turbo my stratus. I have heard though that you can't do to much with a turbo on the thing and that there isn't enough room for 2 turbos. However i am thinking about making room... either with modifications to the hood or the firewall. If anyone has any kind of experience with this or has done any kind of research that I am unable to find, i would be extremely grateful!

Youll have to do a little digging around here but... from what I recall the Stealth/3000gt motor sits 180* compared to the one in the Stratus/ Eclipse. I dont believe Ive ever remembered anyone taking the heads from thr DOHC 6G72 and putting them on the SOHC 6g72. Swapping in the 6G75 from the 06+ Eclipse was popular. The 6G74 was popular for a time too.

yeah it seems like there isn't a whole lot of options for the 6G72 anymore. At least not the one in the stratus. I find this to be extremely unfortunate cause the motor is quite fantastic. Very reliable and easy to work with as long as it's just bolt on's. Taking the heads off kinda sucks. But hey that's what you get when you buy a car made in america with Japanese parts. That being said it's my favorite car to drive that didn't have a V8 in it.
