Yes. Should work fine too, as long as you have a 3.5L PCM too.

A couple of people have allready done the conversion.

The 03 engine is still the same as it was in 98 except for (as hypnos mentioned) the engine controller. 02, 03, 04, use what known as New Generation Controller, the 3.5 from these years would also work with an engine controller from a 98, 99, 00 and 01 3.5 if you change the engine wiring harness which would be easier than changing the main engine compartment harness. If you use a 3.5 from 98-01 it would be a closer (less work) match to yours. Did you check this thread?

Well considering there is no such thing as a 98 or 99 R/T and there are NO Intrepids or LH models that are rear wheel drive........NO! But a '99 or '00 300M 3.5L is the same thing. It would be a VERY difficult find to get an R/T engine. R/T was available in VERY limited #'s from '00 - '02 and SXT was available '02 - '03?. A '02 - '04? ES also has the 3.5 and ALL 300M's have the 3.5. Not sure about LHS' but the '02 Concorde LXI's have it. It's a HUGE step up from a 2.7 off of the line although it still bogs down a bit. What it really needs is shorter gearing like an SE has or a manual transmission (that sadly was never available :()

STOCK #UB0834

This auction is for a 2003 Intrepid engine. It has less then one thousand miles on it. It is single overhead cam 6 cylinder. This is the 3.5 liter 215. It is the vin G motor.

a 2003 Intrepid 3.5L is either 234HP or 250HP, NOT 215. It's either a regular or a High Output. It's more powerful than the first gen 3.5's
