Well, sure, anything is possible, but the cost would be very high. Between the cost of the car, the cost of the engine, all of the electronics involved, and the labour, you'd probably be better off just buying an EVO or STi.
This is a discussion on Engine swap? within the Dodge Dart 1.4L MultiAir Turbo forums, part of the Dodge Dart Garage - The Mopar Zone category; Searched on my phone to see if there was already a tread about this but didn't see one so sorry if it's a repost (or ...
Searched on my phone to see if there was already a tread about this but didn't see one so sorry if it's a repost (or miscategorized.) What are the chances of being able to do an engine swap on these darts? Maybe a Subaru or evo motor? I know it's not as simple as plucking out the old one and dropping in the new one but would it even be possible? Would a shop even be able to accomplish something like this?
I can see swapping out a bland 2.0 for something else... but why swap out the 1.4T...? It is a great little engine!
300+ horsepower out of a 1.4T is possible and WAY cheaper than a totally new engine with labor cost. With $2,000 you are already easily pushing around 250hp.
Sure it can be done... How deep are your pockets??

Im currently looking into dojng a srt4 swap. I'm just waiting on a couple of calls. To see what pricing would be like....
with "2000" in mods you might get to a 14,lol. hell my Drag radials where 400 each. so to buy two of them your down a grand.
if the OP has a 2.0 it be better to just turbo it for the god awful amount he would spend in modification to even allow a 4B11T or a Boxer to be put into this car.
