2.7 conversion to 3.5 question

I just bought a intrepid 2000 model with a bad engine! $400 could not go wrong I figured. What year 3.5 engine will work to do the conversion

For a 2000, any 1998-2001 3.5 engine will work.

I just bought a 1999 Concorde with a blown 2.7. After reading all of the posts about converting the engine to a 3.5, I found that I may have purchased the wrong year engine (2003 3.5). Is there anyway to make this work without having to buy alot more parts or kits?

No real way to avoid buying the extra parts using a 2002-2004 engine, but here is the thread on what is needed for a 02-04 into 98-01.

O.K. I managed to come across a 97 intrepid with a great running 3.5. Can I use that to put in my 99 concorde?

Thanks for the offer Luie. I 'm just trying to go with a conversion with the least amount of modification.

The engine has to be 98-2001 if you want to keep it simple. 93-97 engines are not compatible with 98-01.

Not trying to be a pain in the a$$ but can someone explain to me why that won't fit? I just want to be able to explain it when asked.

Other than some similarities in the major mechanical engine parts, block, etc, to summarize, they are an entirely different beast. Different electronics, oil pan, engine mounts, accessories, the list goes on.

Its also counterproductive horse power wise to install a 1st gen 3.5 in a second gen-- 214 HP for a 96-97 engine, vs 252 HP for a 98-01 engine.

I am sure it is possible to install a 1st gen 3.5 in a 2nd gen, but the cost and trouble of adapting everything over, plus losing the horsepower, does not make it feasible when a 1998-2001 engine is pretty much a direct bolt-in with a few extra parts.

Dude, I found a 3.2L on EBAY that will fit your car. I have a 1998 but I only paid $750 for a 2002 3.5L engine with only 24k miles. I thought about buying the 3.2 and reselling this 3.5, but I'm pretty stubborn so I'm going to make it work. Anyway, here's the link if you wanna take a look at it. Best wishes! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1998-...QQcmdZViewItem

They could have at least used a pic of a 3.2, if not of the actual engine.
