RE: 2.0 dohc vs 2.4 sohc / ECU codes
the biggest difference between them is that the 2.4 is sohc and the 2.0 is dohc.... the 2.4 has loner rods and the pistons are larger in diameter, the compression is also higher in the 2.4, the 2.0 is a dual use engine, that is they put a turbo on it as compared to the 2.4 which was not designed for forced injection........ in that respect the head on a 2.0 gets better airflow...... the idea behind the 2.4 was to compensate for the weight of the top on a n/a engine cause with just a 2.0 n/a engine it would be slow as hell, the also 2.4 has a broader torque band than the 2.0 does which helps the acceleration of that heavy *** canvas on your car......... there is much more you can get into, but thats the basics, anybody else...........
There's two kinds of people in this world.
Stupid people and the ones smart enough to
take advantage of them.......
