Has anyone done a 2.4 swap using a TD auto trans?

That wouldn't make any sense. The 2.0/2.4 3 speed uses the exact same motor mount as the 2.2/2.5. So you'd use the one that bolts properly to the engine.
I've used an ATX from a '97 Neon with an '03 turbo 2.4 in my Omni. Worked quite well.

From what was told to me the trans are not the same, the TD trans is much stronger in some way(discs ?) than the NA Neon trans and the starter is not at the same place (rear in the TD cars)

The starter location is the whole reason not to use the TD trans with the 2.0/2.4 swap. The clutch packs don't make it stronger, just make it hold the power better. You can swap them. The 2.0/2.4 trans got revised bearings that make them stronger/last longer. They also support a lockup torque converter, which is really nice with the high stall turbo torque converters.

Ive ran the TD 5 spds with a 2.4, and now am using a built auto out of a '95 neon. Was lazy this time around and just modified the L body 5 spd mount to work with the auto trans.

Use a '95-'00 block, and you don't need the angle grinder. You'd swear it was designed to have a starter back there.
Not sure why you'd cut up an MTX mount when the TD ATX mounts bolt right up to a Neon ATX. No cutting required. Save the fabrication for the front mount.
Here's what I did for a custom bobble strut mount with the 2.4/Neon ATX in my Omni. Worked really well.
