I'm guessing that won't work in a 2.2/2.5 block. People are getting the SRT4 pistons and rods and putting them in earlier 2.4 blocks, I believe it's because those don't have the big oil drains in the back of the block. This makes bolting in the 2.2/2.5 starter easier.

could work, however the stroke difference would make for a big drop in compression alone. Also don't know about deck height.

The issue is most everything is dealt with in size and compression height with the pistons, any real changes. The rods though you can use, but there isn't much difference between them and 2.4 people have used the 2.5 rods for ever.

Also using the stock pistons are cheap, going to an over bore piston is more money. People are getting low mileage 2.4 NA engines for this, little different than a beat on 25 year old short block 2.2.

I was looking at this as well when I was working on my 2.5l block. I never was able to get information on it since I got rid of the project. But I was always curious about the wrist pin height of the 2.4l Turbo piston.

Main reason I was looking at using them for the hybrid was the availability of the forged 2.4l turbo pistons and no need to machine the rods. Just all together a little bit easier.

I hope you find something out because if I do end up getting another TD, I am still looking at doing a build.
