Heres a link to what has to be swapped , this concerns a 3.2/3.5, but the parts are all the same on 2.7, except the left camshaft belt sprocket is the left timing chain sprocket... You may want to stick with a 2004 or older 2.7 because they changed them again in 2005, so there may be other parts you need to swap too.

I know coming out of a Stratus, in addition to what is listed in that link above, you have to change the motor mounts, front cover, and oil pan to make it fit in your Trep. You could swap all the parts from your old motor most likely.

If you go 98-01 2.7, which I would not recommend because of the notorious nature of them, you would not have to swap anything over.

Why not swap in a 3.2 or 3.5 instead of another 2.7?

Not sure about the changes to the 2005, but it shouldn't be a problem. See this thread: https://dodgeintrepid.net/forums/showthread.php?t=57135 It involves a 2004 Sebring motor... Like I said, I have no idea what changed on the 2005 model that would prevent you from swapping the new motor in... Keep us posted!

I got a similar question. I was told that a 2002 2.7 out of a sebring would fit into my 1999 concorde with a few modifications. Is this true? If so, how difficult are the modifications?

Yes, the front cover and oil pan have to be changed, among the other things listed in the link I posted above about making a 02-04 fit a 98-01. If you have the 2.7 from your Concorde it will be relatively easy. Why not swap in a 3.2/3.5 instead?

All of these motors are in demand and they are not cheap either. I'm working with a tight budget and need to get this done within two weeks. I've found the 2.7 but was unsure it it would work. Thanks for the link.

Why are you having problems with the security system? Did you swap ecus? You can use the original 2.7 ecu, it will run the engine just fine.
